The Ministry of Public Health along with Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) and Qatar Cancer Society (QCS), are partnering once again to strengthen their existing efforts to raise awareness of lung cancer throughout May, the Lung Cancer Awareness Month and also for the World No Tobacco Day.
Lung cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in one or both lungs; usually in the cells that line the air passages. Lung cancer is the second most common cancer globally and is ranked 5th and 8th amongst the most common cancers in Qatar according to 2015 annual report of Qatar National Cancer Registry at the Ministry of Public Health.
Over 16 percent of cancer-related deaths among Qatar's population in 2015 were caused by lung cancer and tobacco use is responsible for about 90 percent of all cases of lung cancer. The joint efforts of Qatar's healthcare partners focus on encouraging the public to quit smoking and to lead a healthier life.
