The single most important and effective way you can reduce your risk of lung cancer is to stop smoking. If you smoke and you’d like to quit, we can help. Talk to your doctor at Middle Georgia Pulmonary so we can support you in reaching this vital goal.
There are also many resources available to help you quit smoking, including:
Polluted air can cause or greatly exacerbate lung conditions. Get involved with your community to encourage healthy air; our air quality, indoors and out, affects each and every one of us. Pollution is universally hazardous to our lungs and our families’ lungs; explore the ways you can be part of the solution.
The American Lung Association offers free classes and trainings for individuals facing lung disease. These courses can be taken online or in person; view them here.
Whether you have asthma, COPD, or lung cancer, know that there is a community out there ready to support you. These diseases can be lifelong or even life-threatening, and we know what an impact they can have on your quality of life. We want you to feel comfortable coming to us with your concerns, and we also want you to reach out to your community, your family, and your friends for support and encouragement. You do not have to fight your disease alone.
