Treatment Lung cancer abroad

 Lung cancer forms in the tissue of lungs and grows malignant cells there.  The mecial term for lung cancer is carcinoma. Almost 85% of this type of cancer is due to tobacco smoking. There are two types of lung cancer: small-cell and non-small cell type.   

Lung cancer symptoms 

 The first carnicoma symptoms can be determined very early. The most typical signs of lung cancer are as follows:

  1. Pain. Often the first symptoms of lung cancer is the painful feeling in the chest. More than 60% of all patients experience this pain during the first stage lung cancer. This sign of lung cancer indicates that the cancerous process reached the pleura, as there are no receptors in the carnicoma tissue that could perceive pain.
  2. Cough. 80-90% of all patients have severe cough case during the lung cancer. Cough may also contain blood.
  3. Haemoptysis. This is an official term for the cough, that has the colour the raspberry jelly, because of the big amount of blood in it.
  4. Shortness of breath. This symptom of lung cancer happens usually in the morning. When the patient has compression of the blood vessels, he experiences the shortness of breath.
  5. Anemia
  6. Weight loss
  7. Weakness
  8. Fatigue
  9. Inflammatory disease.The symptoms of lung cancer can be inflammatory diseases.

 These symptoms vary depending on lung cancer stages, but painful cough is probably one the most early signs of lung cancer.

Causes of lung cancer are:

  1. Tobacco consumption
  2. Life in a big city
  3. Radioactive environment of everyday life
  4. Pollution of the air
  5. Age
  6. Heredity     

Diagnosis of lung tumor

  1. Clinical examination, survey, inspection. The doctor pays attention to the personal history of the patient health case, the presence of typical carnicoma symptoms and general condition.
  2. X-ray examination. This is the most simple and fast method of diagnosis. In most cases carnicoma is diagnosed using fluorography. If some suspicious formation is detected on the picture, the doctor may recommend X-ray in two projections, which helps to better define the location of the cancer.
  3. Bronchoscopy. With the help of a bronchoscope physician can visually examine the trachea of the patient. Significant advantage of this method is the ability to detect a tumor and at the same time take samples for biopsy.

      4. Ultrasonography. Painless, affordable, safe and informative diagnostic method.

      5. Cancer markers. The modern medicine is actively exploring the possibility of an early diagnosis with the help of special markers. This is a very promising area, but at the moment it has not been researched enough.

Lung cancer treatment       

Lung cancer treatment has many options, which can cure all types of carnicoma.


In the early stages of carnicoma the tumor can be completely removed, if it does not yet have metastases and if it is localized in one area. This lung cancer treatment involves radical removal. If the radical removal is not possible, the surgeon resorts to palliative, removing a part of the primary tumor to relieve the patient's pain and to reduce the symptoms.

Radiation therapy.

This therapy is applied simultaneously with the removal of the tumor.


Some medication for carnicoma can reduce the size of the tumor, but its complete disappearance can rarely be achieved.

Palliative treatment of lung cancer

Often the treatment for carnicoma is impossible, especially if the stage is progressed.   The scheme is selected individually for each case.

Preventive measures

Prevention of carnicoma greatly reduces the chances of its appearance. First of all, lung cancer vaccine should be prescribed for those, who have the predisposition for this illness. Sometimes lung cancer vaccine can save the human life.  

Other preventive measures must include:

Giving up of smoking. This habit has a negative affect on the whole body, but lungs suffer the most. It is best not to start smoking at all and if the person does smoke - to quit as soon as possible. Passive smoking must also be avoided.

Eliminating risk factors. If the person works in the polluted environment, the risk increases by several times.

Equally important preventive care. Fluorography should be done at least annually, regardless of the condition and state of health.
