Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers among both men and women, accounting for approximately 14 percent of new cancer diagnoses each year. The American Cancer Society estimates that approximately 234,030 new cases of lung cancer will be diagnosed in 2018, and an estimated 154,050 people will die of the disease this year. Tobacco use, a leading contributor to lung cancer, remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the U.S. Quitting, even for a day, is an important step toward a healthier life.

Although less common than lung cancer, the American Cancer Society, an estimated 55,440 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2018, and approximately 44,330 people with pancreatic cancer will die of the disease this year. Tobacco use is a leading risk factor for pancreatic cancer, along with obesity.
