Lung Cancer

  A cancerous tumor is a group of cancer cells that can grow into and destroy nearby tissue and can spread to other parts of the body. When cancer starts in lung cells, it is called as primary lung cancer. Cells in the lungs sometimes change and no longer grow or behave normally. These changes may lead to non-cancerous tumors such as hamartoma and papilloma. There are two types of lung cancer:

Small cell lung cancer (SCLC)

Small cell lung cancer starts in cells that line the bronchi in the center of the lungs. Two main types of small cell lung cancer are small cell carcinoma and combined small cell carcinoma.

Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)

Non-small cell lung cancer is the common type of lung cancer. It accounts for nearly nine out of every 10 cases, and usually grows at a slower rate. There are various types of non-small cell lung cancer:

·         Adenocarcinomas

·         Squamous cell carcinomas

·         Large cell carcinomas

·         Superior sulcus (Pancoast) tumors

·         Neuroendocrine lung tumors

·         Mixtures of different types of NSCLC


Symptoms of lung cancer include:

·         Coughing up blood

·         Shortness of breath

·         Chest pain

·         Hoarseness

·         Losing weight

·         Bone pain

·         Headache
