Overview

Primary prevention of large cell carcinoma of the lung includes avoidance of smoking, smoking exposure, exposure to asbestos, and other high risk occupational jobs.[1]The secondary prevention of large cell carcinoma of the lungs based on the stage of large cell carcinoma of the lung at diagnosis. Secondary prevention include chest CT imaging along with periodic evaluation of alert signs in second-hand smokers or active smokers.[2]
