Radon Lung Cancer Symptoms — Know the Signs!

Did you know that November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month? And while smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the United States, the second leading cause of lung cancer is due to exposure to radon gas. Long term exposure to elevated levels of radon gas in your home will put you and your family at risk for lung cancer.
