Types and Staging of Lung Cancer | Best Cancer Treatment in India

Description:

Lung cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the lungs. Your lungs are two spongy organs in your chest that take in oxygen when you inhale and release carbon dioxide when you exhale. People who smoke have the greatest risk of lung cancer. The risk of lung cancer increases with the length of time and number of cigarettes you've smoked. If you quit smoking, even after smoking for many years, you can significantly reduce your chances of developing lung cancer. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Types and Staging of Lung Cancer
There are two major types of lung cancer,
non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small cell
lung cancer (SCLC). Staging lung cancer is based
on whether the cancer is local or has spread from
the lungs to the lymph nodes or other organs.
Because the lungs are large, tumors can grow in
them for a long time before they are found. Even
when symptomssuch as coughing and fatiguedo
occur, people think they are due to other causes.
For this reason, early-stage lung cancer (stages
I and II) is difficult to detect. Most people
with lung cancer are diagnosed at stages III and
IV.

  • Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
  • Non-small cell lung cancer accounts for about 85
    percent of lung cancers. Among them are these
    types of tumors
  • Adenocarcinoma is the most common form of lung
    cancer in both men and women.
  • Squamous cell carcinoma (which is also called
    epidermoid carcinoma) forms in the lining of the
    bronchial tubes.
  • Large cell carcinomas refer to non-small cell
    lung cancers that are neither adenocarcinomas nor
    epidermoid cancers.

Stages of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Stage I
The cancer is located only in the lungs and has
not spread to any lymph nodes. Stage II The
cancer is in the lung and nearby lymph
nodes. Stage III Cancer is found in the lung
and in the lymph nodes in the middle of the
chest, also described as locally advanced
disease. Stage III has two subtypes If the
cancer has spread only to lymph nodes on the same
side of the chest where the cancer started, it is
called stage IIIA. If the cancer has spread to
the lymph nodes on the opposite side of the
chest, or above the collar bone, it is called
stage IIIB. Stage IV This is the most advanced
stage of lung cancer, and is also described as
advanced disease. This is when the cancer has
spread to both lungs, to fluid in the area around
the lungs, or to another part of the body, such
as the liver or other organs.

Small Cell Lung Cancer Small cell lung cancer
results from smoking even more so than non-small
cell lung cancer, and grow more rapidly and
spread to other parts of the body earlier than
non-small cell lung cancer. It is also more
responsive to chemotherapy. Stages of Small
Cell Lung Cancer Limited stage In this stage,
cancer is found on one side of the chest,
involving just one part of the lung and nearby
lymph nodes. Extensive stage In this stage,
cancer has spread to other regions of the chest
or other parts of the body.
