Connection Is the media connected to the growing population of smokers ? There is no growing population of smokers. It decreased but since 2005 to 2013 it has stayed the same. How is lung cancer related to other diseases? Lung cancer is related to asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, pneumonia, and tuberculosis because they all affect our lungs and our breathing. You get aches all over, it's hard to breathe, you have a raspy voice, and it's hard to sleep for a long time. What warning signs do you see in lung cancer? You have a chronic cough, a shortness of breath, chronic mucus production, wheezing, coughing up blood, and chronic chest pain. How has lung cancer changed the lives of ones who have been affected? They have experienced different emotions including fear of death, anxiety, anger, and depression. In which ways has lung cancer changed over time? There have been fewer deaths. Men, women, and children who get lung cancer have an 80% chance of living. When you smoke, tar gets stuck in your lungs making it hard to breathe. This is called emphysema. The tar gets stuck while going through the nasal passage causing smokers cough. What are other ways one can get lung cancer? Pollution, smoking, industrial compounds, radon, second hand smoking, and genes can cause lung cancer. Genes come in pairs and work together to make a product; therefore the gene that has cancer passes it down to the next. How does lung cancer lead to death? It is the number one death cause, and it can lead to death in different ways like tumors, infections, medical errors, medication errors, and complications in surgeries. Even though lung cancer causes lots of pain and sadness, one good way to look at it is through research. How do people in other cultures view smoking? Native Americans use a peace pipe and smoke signals for religious celebrations such as religious dancing. Some people who are Rastafarian believe that smoking marijuana brings you closer to God. You lose your hair, there's a lot of pain, and it's hard for family members. How does lung cancer influence our way of life? You need a lot of support from friends, family, and doctors.
