Title:

Lung Cancer Treatment at Top Cancer Hospitals 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. Lung cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in one or both lungs. These abnormal cells do not carry out the functions of normal lung cells and do not develop into healthy lung tissue. As they grow, the abnormal cells can form tumors and interfere with the functioning of the lung, which provides oxygen to the body via the blood. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Lung Cancer Treatment At Top Cancer Hospitals
In India


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. Lung cancer is the uncontrolled growth of
abnormal cells in one or both lungs. These
abnormal cells do not carry out the functions of
normal lung cells and do not develop into healthy
lung tissue. As they grow, the abnormal cells can
form tumors and interfere with the functioning of
the lung, which provides oxygen to the body via
the blood.

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 o  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. o 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.

  • Treatment for Lung Cancer Hospitals in
    India
  • Surgical removal of the tumor is generally
    performed for limited-stage (stage I or sometimes
    stage II) NSCLC and is the treatment of choice
    for cancer that has not spread beyond the lung.
    About 20-45 of lung cancers can be removed
    surgically, but removal does not always result in
    a cure, since the tumors may already have spread
    and can recur at a later time.
  • Radiation therapy may be employed as a treatment
    for both NSCLC and SCLC. Radiation therapy uses
    high-energy X-rays or other types of radiation to
    kill dividing cancer cells
  • Chemotherapy This is the treatment of cancer
    with anti-cancer drugs. The aim is to destroy
    cancer cells while doing the least possible
    damage to normal cells. The drugs work by
    stopping cancer cells from multiplying.Chemotherap
    y is the treatment of choice for patients with
    small cell carcinoma.
