Young Smokers to Stop Smoking.
Just did our rotation in tuberculosis rotation in the hospital. We had to analyze xrays and have had a great insightful week. We had a few cases on lung cancer too and I think it's best to start with the basic, which is to remind people on the danger of smoking itself.
Smoking kills- and thats not just there for the tagline in campaign, it really happen. And looking at the number of cases we've analyzed throughout the years of medschool, once you're a smoker, you are automatically placed into the group risk of developing lung cancer 10 or 20 yrs from now. Please be careful. Asses your coughing pattern, if you think you cough more than previous years, then you might be in trouble. Cancer is taking up a lot of cost and it's such a sad fact just because it can be avoided.
Thanks.Sorry for the short, not so much comprehensive input, but heyy cut me some slack =P
