Effects of Lung cancer

Cancer is when cells become abnormal and grow out of control, lung cancer can start in the lining of the bronchi which is the tube into which the trachea or windpipe divides. The other place it can grow from is other areas of the lung where build up of cells take place.

Types of lung cancer

The most common types of lung cancer are small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer.

Small cell lung cancer is when the cells are small and round and non small lung cancer is when the cells are larger. In some cases the person may have both types of cancer developing called mixed small cell/large cell cancer. 80% of lung cancer falls under non small cell lung cancer with small cell lung cancer accounts for around 20%.

Treating lung cancer

People who have early lung cancer do not realise until the symptoms start showing. The symptoms are:

  • Persistent coughing
  • Chest pain
  • Hoarseness
  • Weight loss
  • Bloody or rust coloured sputum

In many cases a simply x-ray would establish the extent of the damaged cells and catch symptoms early. This would later be followed by taking a sample of the tissue by performing a simple biopsy to confirm whether or not it’s lung cancer.

Types of treatment available

There are different types of treatments available for lung cancer which can be successful. The options include general surgery to remove bad cells, chemotherapy, radiation and photodynamic therapy. Out of these the most experimental treatment is photodynamic therapy which uses light to kill cancerous cells.
