Lung cancer diagnosis and treatment
This is how stage-3 of lung cancer is treated
Treatment during the second stage of lung cancer depends on where the cancer is located in the lungs, its size, the age of the patient and whether the patient has any other serious disease, etc. But most doctors usually use several different methods of therapy to treat stage-3 lung cancer. These treatments include…
- radiation therapy
- laser therapy
- endoscopic stent
Smoking is the biggest reason
This cancer can be cured. It depends on whether the person has cancer, at which stage it is detected and after that he gets the right treatment. The first thing you can do to avoid this cancer is to avoid tobacco products. Cigarette smoking is responsible for 90% of lung cancer cases. The risk is increased for people who smoke heavily or who started smoking at a young age. Even if you currently smoke and quit now, your chances of developing lung cancer in the future will be reduced. However, this cancer can also happen to people who have never smoked. If you do not smoke and come in contact with secondhand smoke, then it can also cause lung cancer. If it has happened to anyone in the family before then it can happen to you.
5 other common causes of Lung Cancer
- A person who smokes more than one pack of cigarettes per day has a risk 20-25 times greater than someone who has never smoked.
- Cigar and pipe smoking increases the risk of lung cancer but not as much as smoking cigarettes.
- Asbestos fibers are silicate fibers that can persist for a lifetime in lung tissue following exposure to asbestos. The workplace is a common source of exposure to asbestos fibers.
- Radon gas is a natural chemically inert gas that is a natural decay product of uranium. With an estimated 12% deaths attributable to radon gas.
- Air pollution from vehicles, industry, and power plants can raise the likelihood of developing lung cancer in exposed individuals
If a person reports symptoms that may trigger lung-related cancer, then a chest radiograph graph is developed in the first step. The tests reveal mediastinium expansion, atelectasis and pleural effusion. Although nothing has been found on the radio but the suggestion for this is high due to factors such as the fact that a person smokes a lot of bloody sputum where CT-Scan can provide the necessary information. If the findings are normal for sputum cells, then they increase the risk of this type of cancer.
Early detection can be done by Sputum cytologic tests and other diagnostic tests. A separate diagnosis of those patients with coronary heart disease focuses on lung-related cancer and non-malignant diseases. This looks at infectious causes such as tuberculosis or pneumonia. The diseases mentioned above can lead to pneumonia.
Lung cancer treatment possibilities keep these things in mind
While treating any serious and life-threatening disease, doctors try to give their best. But only one type of treatment becomes a boon for some people, while some people are not able to survive even after this treatment.
However, in the last few years, a lot of developments have taken place in the treatment of cancer and their positive results are also being seen. Whether or not the cancer will completely go away from a person’s body or the extent to which the patient will get medical comfort, it depends on his health and body. That is, how healthy is he and how his body is reacting to the treatment.
To avoid being a part of lung cancer statistics, make sure you do not get small cell lung cancer or small-scale lung cancer by living a healthy and active life.
Regular exercise, eating a healthy diet and avoiding exposure to polluted air including cigarette smoke will help strengthen your immune system and this will prevent you from getting a deadly disease.
