The Rising Threat: Lung Cancer in India

Lung cancer is a growing concern in India, with an increasing number of cases reported each year. India is the world's second-largest consumer of tobacco and third-largest producer. An estimated 267 million people in India use tobacco, with 28.6% of the population (42.4% men and 14.2% women) using tobacco products. Lung cancer is characterized by the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the lung tissues, leading to the formation of tumors that can impede lung function.
