Lung Diseases, Cancer & its Epidemiology

Lung Diseases, Cancer & its Epidemiology Photo

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is responsible for early mortality, high death rates and significant cost to health systems. The projection for 2020 indicates that COPD will be the third leading cause of death in the world.  Active smoking remains the main risk factor, but other factors such as occupational factors, infections and the role of air pollution also play a major role. Prevalence of COPD varies according to the country, age and sex. The major challenge in the coming years will be to prevent onset of smoking along with early detection of the disease in the population. An estimated 328 million people have COPD worldwide and in 15 years, COPD is expected to become the leading cause of death worldwide.
