Lung cancer and its treatment
Lung cancer is one of the most common and serious types of cancer.
There are usually no signs or symptoms in the early stages of lung cancer, but many people with this condition eventually develop symptoms:
– Constant coughing
– coughing up blood
– Constant breathlessness
– Unexplained fatigue and weight loss
– Pain or pain when breathing or coughing
If you have these symptoms then you should see a GP.
Types of lung cancer
There are two main forms of primary lung cancer.
They are classified by the type of cells in which cancer begins to grow.
– non-small cell lung cancer. The most common form, accounting for more than 87 percent of cases.
– It can be one of three types: squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma or large-cell carcinoma.
– Small-cell lung cancer – is a less common form that usually spreads more rapidly than non-small-cell lung cancer.
– Your lung cancer type determines which treatment is recommended.
Who was impressed
Lung cancer mainly affects older people. It is rare in people under 40.
Four out of 10 people with lung cancer in the UK are aged 75 and above.
Although people who have never smoked can develop lung cancer, smoking is the most common cause (in about 72 percent of cases).
This is because smoking regularly involves taking many different toxins.
Treatment of lung cancer
Treatment depends on the type of cancer, how widespread it is and how good your health is.
If the condition is diagnosed early and the cancer cells are confined to a small area, surgery may be recommended to remove the affected area of the lung.
If surgery is inappropriate due to your general health, radiotherapy may be recommended to destroy cancer cells instead.
If the cancer has spread too far for surgery or radiotherapy to be effective, chemotherapy is usually used.
There are a number of drugs also known as targeted therapies.
They target a specific change in or around cancer cells that is helping them grow.
Targeted therapies may not cure lung cancer but they may slow its spread.
