Doctors cannot always explain why one person gets cancer and another doesn't. However, scientists have studied general patterns of cancer in the population to learn what things around us and what things we do in our lives may increase our chance of developing cancer.

Lung cancer can often be associated with known risk factors for the disease. Many risk factors are modifiable though not all can be avoided.
