    I've moved this to the biology study help forum where hopefully you'll get more responses

    From my understanding, it would depend entirely on the type of lung cancer and what stage it is at. Although a generic answer would be that it would decrease the effectiveness of 02 and CO2 exchange, negatively effect the breathing rate and decrease the lung volume.
