Types of Lung Injuries
At LungInjuries.org, we focus on four of the most common types of lung injuries. Learn more about their causes, symptoms and treatment options.
Lung cancer develops in one lung and can spread to the other, to lymph nodes, and to other parts of the body. It is most often caused by smoking or secondhand smoke, but can also be caused by exposure to certain toxic substances. Early detection and treatment is crucial to a favorable prognosis.
Adenocarcinoma is a cancer that develops in mucus-secreting glands. It most commonly occurs in the lungs, prostate, pancreas, esophagus and colon. It can be treated with minimally-invasive surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation.
