Review of Part 1
The lungs help the body get the air it needs to live.
The lungs are made of many small airways and sacs.
Lung cancer often starts in the cells that line the airways.
Cancer cells form a tumor since they don’t die as they should.
Cancer cells can spread to other body parts through lymph or blood.
