Factores de riesgo del cáncer de pulmón

El riesgo de cancer de pulmón aumenta con el consumo de tabaco. La mayoría de los casos de cancer de pulmón están relacionados al consumo excesivo de tabaco y en pacientes con enfermedad pulmonar crónica.

También existe el riesgo ambiental relacionado al gas radón, que es un gas natural que ocurre en la tierra, además de otras sustancias como el smog y polución ambiental. Por supuesto que existen canceres de pulmón en pacientes que nunca han fumado y también en pacientes que han estado expuestos a tabaco en la familia por exposición a segunda mano También pacientes que han estado expuestos a asbestos, desarrollan asbestosis y con esta tienen un riesgo aumentado de desarrollar cancer de pulmón además de otro tipo de cancer llamado el mesotelioma pleural.


 

Risk factors for lung cancer

The risk for lung cancer increases with tobacco consumption. Most lung cancer cases are related to excessive use of tobacco and pulmonary chronic disease.

As well, there is an environmental risk that is related with radon gas, which is a natural gas from the earth, and also smog and environmental pollution. There are some lung cancer cases in patients who have never smoked and in patients who have only being secondarily exposed to tobacco with their families. Also, there are patients that have being exposed to asbestos developing asbestosis which increases the risk for lung cancer and of pleural mesothelioma.
