According to the World Health Organization (WHO), lung cancer was responsible for the highest number of cancer deaths in 2018, i.e. 1.8 million deaths or 18.4% of the total number of deaths.

Unfortunately, patients have reportedly delayed getting diagnosed and treated due to the stigma attached to this disease.

In an effort to stop such stigma, it’s crucial to first fix common misconceptions about the disease.

Myth 1: Only smokers succumb to lung cancer
Myth 2: Non-smokers will never develop lung cancer
Myth 3: People without symptoms don’t have to worry about lung cancer
Myth 4: There is no hope for lung cancer patients
