Lung cancer claims more lives in America every year than any other form of cancer. In 2020, 136,084 people died of lung cancer. That’s more than double the next-deadliest cancer—51,869 people died of colorectal cancer the same year.
Dr. Ali Abedi and his team here at Texas IPS were interviewed by SA Live on KSAT 12 on learning how to take a lung cancer risk assessment test. Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers and leading killers in both men and women in the United States.
