Dr Preetha Rajaraman - NCI Centre for Global Health, New Delhi, India

Dr Rajaraman speaks with ecancer at EBMCI 2017 about lung cancer, from its global incidence to an increasing trend in India.

She notes air pollution as likely contributors in Indian populations beyond tobacco use, and highlights that quitting smoking at any time in life can improve health and cancer risk.

Dr Rajaraman does note second hand smoke as a risk factor, though other causative pollutants vary by region, with indoor air pollution a notable risk in India.

Lung cancer screening is also discussed by Dr Christine Berg here.
