Lung Cancer Podcast
While cigarette smoking is an undisputed cause of lung cancer, not all cases of lung cancer occur in smokers or former smokers. Each year, over 170,000 Americans develop lung cancer, and approximately 10% of lung cancers occur in non-smokers. Although not every non-smoker suffering from lung cancer will have an identifiable risk factor for development of the disease, a number of conditions and circumstances have been identified that will increase a non-smoker’s chance of developing lung cancer. Dr. Gary Kohler, a board certified pulmonologist and critical care specialist on staff at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital, discusses the signs and symptoms of lung cancer, and your possible risk factors.

For more information on lung cancer or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kohler, call Pulmonary Associates of Southwest Louisiana at (337) 494-2750 or visit www.pulmonaryassociatesswla.com.
