The American Lung Association wants veterans and their loved ones to know that those who served have a higher incidence of lung cancer than the general population. Veterans are urged to talk with their doctors about their risk for lung cancer; veterans who smoke or did smoke should visit lungcancerscreeningsaveslives.org.
The Lung Helpline, at 1-800-LUNG-USA (586-4872) is available seven days a week to answer questions about lung health and provide reliable information about quitting smoking. To learn even more visit www.LungNE.org. Working together, we can raise awareness about lung cancer, reduce its incidence and increase the number of survivors.
