Smoking and lung cancer

Cigarette smoking is one of the most common (and dangerous) habits to pick up.

It’s also the leading risk factor for lung cancer, the second most common cancer among both men and women in the United States. So why is smoking so bad for your lung health? Smoking is harmful to the body from the moment it is inhaled.

“Smoking inflames and irritates the lungs," said Dr. Jeffrey Mazer with Lovelace Medical Group. Dr. Mazer is board-certified in critical care, pulmonary medicine and internal medicine.
