Smoking Cessation in Lung Cancer Patients

Dr. Adrian Cristian

Lung cancer is the leading cause of death of men and women in the US. According to the American Cancer Society, most lung cancer is caused by smoking.

Adrian Cristian, Physiatrist at Miami Cancer Institute, says stopping smoking is probably the most important thing that you can do to minimize the complications, so part of the rehabilitation program for someone with lung cancer is smoking cessation.

He points out that if the person is actively smoking before their surgery or treatments, the program is to offer services to help them to stop smoking.
