Hi everyone,it have been long but was researching.Today i will be looking on how poverty is related as a risk factor of lung cancer. poverty and lung cancer Poverty has a huge impact on cancer and it contributes to an increase in cancer incidence and mortality. Overcoming the combined problem of poverty and cancer has been particularly difficult and although there are fewer deaths due to advancements in medicine, early detection and better treatment, those who are in the more deprived parts...Read More...

LUNG CANCER

Roba Abduba (Tigithi)
Types of Lung Cancer There two main types of lung cancer are small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. These categories refer to what the cancer cells look like under a microscope. Non-small cell lung cancer is more common than small cell lung cancer. Staging If lung cancer is diagnosed, other tests are done to find out how far it has spread through the lungs, lymph nodes, and the rest of the body. This process is called staging. The type and stage of lung cancer tells doctors...Read More...

Screening methods do not reveal all types of cancer. Both screening methods in this pilot project, (flexible sigmoidoscopy done once, or testing for hidden blood in the stool every other year), are expected to discover 60-70 per cent of tumours in the colon and rectum. A positive screening test can also often be a false alarm. Eight out of ten who are told that they have hidden blood in their stools do NOT have cancer. However, there is a greater possibility that they have polyps (possible...Read More...

Development of lung cancer

Roba Abduba (Tigithi)
How does lung cancer develop Pathophysiology is the study of the functional changes that accompany a particular disease. The pathophysiology of lung cancer is complex and still not completely understood, however, the understanding of the pathophysiology of lung cancer has advanced over time. Scientists have determined that lung cancer develops from a number of factors. Environmental pollutants and carcinogens (substances that are known to produce cancer or increase the risk of developing...Read More...

Lung cancer diagnosis

Roba Abduba (Tigithi)
Hi everyone today am posting on diagnosis of lung cancer. A doctor may suspect lung cancer if a routine physical exam reveals: 1.swollen lymph nodes above the collarbone. 2.weak breathing. 3.Droopy eyelids. 4.Weakness in one arm. 5.Swelling on the face. 6.Unequal pupils. 7.Dullness when the chest is tapped. 8.Abnormal sounds in the lungs. Some lung cancers produce abnormally high blood levels of certain hormones or substances such as calcium. If a person shows such evidence and no other...Read More...

lung cancer screening

Roba Abduba (Tigithi)
Hi everyone,As I had said earlier today i will be looking on lung cancer screening. What is screening? Screening is looking for cancer before a person has any symptoms. This can help find cancer at an early stage. When abnormal tissue or cancer is found early, it may be easier to treat. By the time symptoms appear, cancer may have begun to spread. scientists are trying to better understand which people are more likely to get certain types of cancer. They also study the things we do and the...Read More...

risk factors of lung cancer

Roba Abduba (Tigithi)
Hi everyone as i said early today i will be looking on risk factors of cancer. Smoking. Your risk of lung cancer increases with the number of cigarettes you smoke each day and the number of years you have smoked. Quitting at any age can significantly lower your risk of developing lung cancer. Exposure to secondhand smoke. Even if you don't smoke, your risk of lung cancer increases if you're exposed to secondhand smoke. Exposure to radon gas. Radon is produced by the natural breakdown of...Read More...

causes of lung cancer(part 3)

Roba Abduba (Tigithi)
familial predisposition inquiry question;what are the major causes of lung cancer?.While the majority of lung cancers are associated with tobacco smoking, the fact that not all smokers eventually develop lung cancer suggests that other factors, such as individual genetic susceptibility, may play a role in the causation of lung cancer. Numerous studies have shown that lung cancer is more likely to occur in both smoking and nonsmoking relatives of those who have had lung cancer than in the...Read More...

Lung cancer staging

lung cancer staging Inquiry question; which is the cheapest way of treating lung cancer. hi everyone, today a'm focusing on lung cancer staging.Lung cancer staging is the assessment of the extent to which a lung cancer has spread from it's original source.In general, more advanced stages of cancer are less amenable to treatment and have a worse prognosis.The initial evaluation of non-small cell lung cancer staging uses the TNM classification.This is based on the size of the primary tumor...Read More...

lung cancer/lung carcinoma is a malignant cell division or cell death in a lung tissue. common treatments include surgery,chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The vast majority (85%) of cases of lung cancer are due to long-term tobacco smoking.Primary method of preventing is avoidance of smoking and air pollution. Symptoms of lung cancer are coughing (coughing up blood) ,weight loss,shortness of breath and chest pain. Worldwide in 2012, lung cancer occurred in 1.8 million people and resulted in...Read More...
