Associated conditions are those which appear
statistically related, but do not have
a clear cause or effect relationship.
Whereas the complications
are caused by Lung cancer,
and underlying causes
may be causes of Lung cancer,
the following list shows associated conditions
that simply appear with higher frequency in people
who have Lung cancer.
In some cases, there may be overlap
between this list and risk factors
for Lung cancer.
People with Lung cancer may be more likely to
get a condition on the list of associated conditions,
or the reverse may be true, or both.
Whether they are causes of, caused by, or simply
coincidentally related to Lung cancer
is not always clear.
