Lung Cancer - GO On...Smoke That Cigarette!

By Ricardo Henri


Lung cancer is a disease of uncontrolled cell reproduction in tissues of the lung. It is one of the most common cancers in the United States, accounting for about fifteen percent of all cases, or one hundred and seventy thousands new cases a year. It is also the worst cancer killer in America, killing more people every year than breast, prostate and colorectal cancers combined, according to the American Cancer Society. It is the leading cause of cancer deaths in US women and is responsible for as many deaths as breast and all gynecological cancers total.


Smoking, radon, and 2nd hand smoke are the leading reasons. Smoking causes an estimated one hundred and sixty thousands deaths in the US. Smoking leads to eighty five to ninety percent of all cancers of the lungs. Smoking affects non-smokers by exposing them to second hand smoke. If a person quits smoking, this chance steadily decreases as harm to the lungs is repaired and contaminant particles are gradually removed.


Radon is a colorless and odorless gas created by the breakdown of radioactive radium, which in turn is the decay material of uranium, found in the earth's crust. Radon is the #1 cause of lung cancer among those who do not smoke, according to EPA estimates. Radon causes between fifteen thousand and twenty two thousand deaths each year in the United States -- twelve percent of all lung cancer deaths are linked to radon.


Risk factors embrace the following: Smoking cigarettes or cigars, in the present or in the past. Not all cases are due to smoking, however the role of passive smoking is increasingly being recognized as a risk factor, leading to policy interventions to reduce undesired exposure of non-smokers to other peoples tobacco smoke. A smoker who is also exposed to radon has a much elevated risk. The more cigarettes you smoke per day and the earlier you started smoking, the higher your risk of lung cancer. High levels of pollution, radiation and asbestos exposure may also increase risk.


Symptoms encompass: Chronic cough, Hoarseness, spitting up blood, Weight loss & loss of appetite, Shortness of breath, Fever without a known reason, Wheezing, Repeated episodes of bronchitis or pneumonia and Chest pain. About 10 percent of people do not have signs at diagnosis; these cancers are incidentally found on routine chest x-rays. In fact, lung cancer can spread outside the lungs without producing any symptoms.


Treatment is dependent on the cancer's specific cell type, how far it has spread, and the individuals performance status. It also depends on the stage, or how advanced it is. Therapy choices can be discussed with your physician. It may encompass chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. In recent years, various molecular targeted therapies have been produced as treatments.


Lung cancer is the second most commonly happening form of cancer in the majority of western countries, and it is the leading cancer-related cause of death. It is the most common reason for cancer deaths in both men and women, accounting for nearly thirty three percent of cancer deaths annually in the US. It has become the subject of a great amount of research. Even though the rate of men dying from it is declining in western countries, it is actually increasing for females due to the increased takeup of smoking by this group. We already know that the best way to prevent it is to stop (or never start) smoking. Three to five years after stopping, the risk of developing the disease is reduced by 50%.
