Why are people more focused on breast cancer than lung cancer when lung kills more people every year

breast kills 40,000 every year but lung kills 160,000 every year

Um. This isnt a stupid question but I disagree with u. First off, NO ONE deserves any kind of cancer!! It's a horrible thing! But theirs more you can do to prevent lung cancer than their is to breast cancer. People are focused on breast cancer more alittle because more people have it and people like to try to help the cause. My grandma just got diagnosed with breast cancer and it's horrible. There are many organizations for lung cancer if you go to http://www.lungcanceralliance.org/get-help-and-support/ as well as http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=3&ved=0CHAQFjAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.lung.org%2F&ei=DfSvT8W2HpKa8gTMhfXeCA&usg=AFQjCNFHpYl1ik_EW0cGdJsVwPSYJz2Esg and also http://www.cancer.org/

All cancer has a life style component to it, not just lung cancer. All cancer is somewhat preventable. Something in the body caused weak cells that were easily invaded by cancer cells.

I don't think people and organizations are biased on the attention they give to the various types of cancers. However, on some regions, breast cancer is given more attention, because breast cancer cases have increased alarmingly over the last few years. In North America alone, breast cancer accounts for over one quarter of all female cancers.

Because men don't care if you have a lung removed.

Hi. alva. Do you see any blue for prostate cancer? That's my point. Save the ta ta's because men are so obsessed with breasts, women have them blown up like bicycle tires. Do men have to "augment themselves?

heart disease kills more women than breast cancer. but of course we still hear more about breast cancer. I think the organizations for breast cancer research got ahead of the game and just got bigger before any other cancer org got started. also, what ^ she said! men don't care if you lose a lung.
