    Afternoon, one of the commonest risk factor is cigarette smoking, also there is an increase risk if there is an immediate family member with lung cancer, if you work in an industry that produces a lot of harmful fumes also can be a risk factor. Avoid cigarette smoking, always wear protective mask at work if it's warranted. Always go for regular clinical check up if you have a family history of cancer. These few tips should help. Cheers
