Asthma/Cancer Correlation Study Conducted by Cancer Prevention & Cure
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 10, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lung diseases affect an increasingly growing sector of the population. Almost 20 million Americans suffer from asthma.

The increased risk of lung cancer among asthma sufferers who have never smoked supports a direct correlation between asthma and lung cancer. Additional genetic and epigenetic factors, poorly understood at present time, are also likely to be responsible for the increased incidence of lung pathologies. At present, there is no simple, reliable method of diagnosing pathologies of human lung tissues early in their development. Furthermore, there is no blood test available today which is capable of indicating the presence of particular lung tissue pathologies.
