Radon exposure: Second hand smoke increases risk of lung cancer, as does exposure to radon, which is why radon testing in the home has become so prevalent. Asbestos is known to cause a rare cancer called mesothelioma. The risk of getting the typical type of lung cancer among people exposed to asbestos is much higher if they are also smokers.
