Lung Cancer

What causes lung cancer?

Smoking is the primary cause of lung cancer, contributing to around 90% of lung cancer diagnoses. 

However, anyone can develop lung cancer. Your genetics contribute to your risk of lung cancer, but if you live or work in an environment that exposes you to hazardous or carcinogenic airborne chemicals, your chances of developing the disease increase. 

Virginia Oncology Care provides customized treatment for lung cancer, depending on your specific needs. Some of the available treatments include:

  • Surgery to remove the tumor

  • Chemotherapy

  • Radiation therapy

  • Targeted therapy to stop the spread of cancer

  • Immunotherapy
