Lung cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in one or both lungs. These abnormal cells do not carry out the functions of normal lung cells and do not develop into healthy lung tissue.
As they grow, the abnormal cells can form tumours and interfere with the functioning of the lung, which provides oxygen to the body via the blood.
