When To Call a Professional
If you experience any symptoms of lung cancer, make an appointment with your health care professional as soon as possible.
Squamous cell lung cancer is usually diagnosed once the disease has spread. The overall prognosis for squamous cell cancer of lung and other cancers of non-small cell lung cancer is poor, with a rate of five-year survival of approximately 16%. The survival rate is higher (almost 50%) when cancers are detected and treated early. The survival rate five years after surgery is approximately 47% for cases of stage I disease In the most advanced, in stage III disease, survival rates five years is approximately 8%.

Your doctor will choose a treatment based on the size and location of the tumor, which defines the stage of cancer. The stage I tumors are small and have not invaded nearby organs or tissues. The tumors in stages II and III have invaded nearby tissue or organs and have spread to lymph nodes. Stages I to III are divided into two categories: “A” and “B”. The stage IV tumors have spread outside the breast area.
Once that step has been determined and the magnitude of cancer, need to apply one or more types of treatment. This may include surgical removal of cancer, treat the area with radiation or cancer chemotherapy or other use of new treatments that offer hope to patients with lung cancer. In general, treatments attempt to reduce or remove the tumor. Once the treatments, lung cancer patients undergoing these treatments continue for months to years, because although the cancer may have narrowed, redevelop or may manifest later.

Without treatment, cancer will continue to grow. As with any cancer, although large cell carcinomas are gone (into remission) after treatment, there is likely to recur.
Quit smoking and avoid inhaling secondhand smoke. Snuff smoke is the major risk factor for most lung cancers, including large cell. Although researchers are studying ways to diagnose lung cancer at earlier stages, has not been proven that these studies to be effective. Read the rest of this entry »

Lung cancer (or carcinoma) is one of the most common cancers diagnosed in both women and men. There are two general categories of lung cancer, lung cancer, small cell (SCLC) or cancer of non-small cell lung (NSCLC). There are many reasons to differentiate NSCLC and SCLC. Cancers are different when examined under a microscope, the first symptoms tend to be different and the treatment approach is also different.
There are several types of lung cancer non-small cell. These include lung cancer, large cell, squamous cell lung cancer and adenocarcinoma of the lung.
While most lung cancers are directly related to cigarette smoking or other exposure to snuff, other chemicals and exposures to agents such as asbestos, radon, chromium, nickel and arsenic could also be associated with the development of lung cancer. Read the rest of this entry »
