Lifestyle Counseling

Our staff can work with you to create lifestyle and exercise guidelines to minimize your risk for lung cancer, including smoking cessation classes. The most important way to protect yourself against lung cancer is not to smoke and to avoid people who are smoking. Also, beware of environmental factors such as asbestos, radon and formaldehyde.
