Lung Cancer Prevention

Even though there is no definite way for lung cancer prevention but risk factors can surely be reduced by taking the proactive measures mentioned below,

 

 

Lung Cancer Prevention

DO NOT smoke:

If you smoke, quit immediately and if you don't, never start. Staying away from tobacco is the best thing you can do to keep away from lung cancer.

Even if you've been smoking for years, quitting will cut down your risk drastically.  If you find it difficult to quit, there is medical help available. You can talk to your doctor for various aids which can help you in quitting smoking.

Avoid second-hand smoke:

If you live or work in an environment where you have somebody who smokes, ask them to quit or ask him to smoke away from you. Avoid areas where the atmosphere is full of cigarette smoke. Opt for smoke-free zones in restaurants and pubs.

Test your home for radon levels:

If you live in areas where radon levels are known to be high, get your home radon levels checked as well.

Stay away with asbestos:

Try to keep away from asbestos fibre as it may cause lung cancer. If you work in a place where asbestos is being used, try to follow all safety measures provided by the company like wearing a mask or respirator to avoid breathing in asbestos fibres.

Avoid carcinogens at workplace:

Protect yourself against exposure to toxic chemicals if that is a part of your work. Follow safety guidelines & measures like wearing a mask etc.

Avoid unnecessary exposure to radiation:

Do not go for needless x rays at frequent intervals. Avoid exposure to radiation as much as possible.

Maintain healthy lifestyle:

Eat a healthy, nutritious and well balanced diet full of fruits, vegetables and grains. Exercise at least 5 days a week. Research says that eating high-fibre, a low-fat diet, which includes fresh fruit and vegetables at least five portions/day and plenty of whole grains can help in reducing the risk of lung cancer, other types of cancers and heart disease as well

Limit alcohol intake:

It is observed that certain types of alcoholic beverages like heavy consumption of beer and hard liquor is found associated with an increased risk of developing lung cancer.

Lung Cancer Screening Tests

Screening tests:

To keep a check on your health status, go for regular lung cancer screening tests and full body checkups. Chest x-ray once in two years should be done as a routine.
