Lung Cancer

Lung Cancer

The lungs are two spongy organs in your chest that take in oxygen when you inhale and release carbon dioxide when you exhale. Lung cancer is a form of cancerous growth in your lungs. It is one of the leading causes of cancer deaths, among both men and women. Lung cancer claims more lives each year than do colon, prostate, ovarian and breast cancers combined.

People who smoke are at the greatest risk of having lung cancer, though lung cancer can also occur in people who have never smoked. The risk of lung cancer increases with the length of time and number of cigarettes being smoked.

Types OF Lung Cancer

Lung cancers are divided into two categories based on which lung cancer treatment is suggested:

  • Small cell lung cancer: Small cell lung cancer occurs exclusively in heavy smokers and is often less common.
  • Non-small cell lung cancer: Non-small cell lung cancer is a term for several types of lung cancers that behave in a similar way. These types of lung cancers include squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma and large cell carcinoma.

 

 


 


More About Treatment

Symptoms of Lung Cancer

Lung cancer typically does not have any signs and symptoms in its initial stages. However, they tend to occur only when the disease is advanced such as:

  • A persistent cough that doesn't go away
  • Coughing up blood
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Hoarseness in Voice
  • Losing weight
  • Bone pain
  • Headache

It is important to note here that although smoking causes the majority of lung cancers both in smokers and in people exposed to passive smoke. But lung cancer also occurs in people who may have never smoked or been exposed to smokes. So, there may be no clear cause of lung cancer.

There Are Ways To Prevent It

However, you would be happy to know that there are certain habits that can help prevent lung cancer, such as:

  • Stop smoking
  • Avoid passive smoke
  • Have the radon levels at home checked
  • Avoid carcinogens
  • Eat full diet fruits and vegetables
  • Exercise
