The lungs are the organs that help us to breath. They help to give oxygen to all the cells in the body. Cancer cells are abnormal cells. Cancer cells grow and divide more quickly than healthy cells. Some cancer cells may form growths called tumors. Lung cancer occurs when cells in the lung change to become abnormal. Lung cancer cells may travel through the blood or lymph system to another area or organ in the body. This is called metastasis.

If you have any questions, please speak to your treating physician.
