Description
Lung cancer is the leading cause of malignancy related death in Japan. Cigarette smoking is the most important preventable risk factor for lung cancer. For smokers who want to quit, nicotine replacement therapy is frequently recommended. The most effective interventions for quitting continue to be a combination of behavioral and pharmacologic approaches. Malignant pleural mesothelioma is closely related to exposure to asbestos, and a rapid increase of the number of MPM patients is estimated to occur from 2010 to 2040. The early detection by the medical check-up is also important for improve the prognosis of patients with lung cancer and malignant pleural mesothelioma.
