Cutting Edge Cancer Treatment
Lung Cancer is the growth of abnormal cells in one or both lungs. These cells can form tumors that interfere with the functions of the lung, (i.e. providing oxygen to the body). Sometimes cancer will travel from one part of the body or metastasize to the lungs. This is called secondary lung cancer.
Know What To Look For
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC) are the two major types of lung cancer. NSCLC cancer makes up 90% of lung cancers and types include adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and large cell carcinoma. NSCLC is less responsive to chemotherapy than SCLC, which tends to grow quicker than NSCLC cancers.
Mesothelioma, an aggressive cancer caused by exposure to asbestos fibers, affects the lining of the lungs and abdomen.
Lung cancer is one of the most preventable, though most deadly, cancers in men and women around the world.
