Lung cancer, also known as lung carcinoma, is characterized by the emergence of a malignant lung tumor that may be caused by uncontrolled cell growth in the different tissues present in the human lungs.
If left unchecked, this disease can quickly proliferate well beyond the lung to various adjoining organs through a process known as metastasis.
Broadly defined, there are three different types of lung cancers that include the following:
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)
This is, by far and large, the most common type of lung cancer prevalent today. It has different sub-types that include the following
- Squamous cell carcinoma and
- Large cell carcinoma
Small cell lung cancer (SCLC)
This form of cancer is also sometimes referred to as ‘oat cell cancer.’ Currently, around ten to fifteen percent of all lung cancers are usually SCLC.
In this form of cancer, the cells tend to contain dense neurosecretory granules due to which, this tumor acquires an endocrine or paraneoplastic syndrome association.
Lung Carcinoid Tumors (LCTs)
The third type of lung cancer is known as ‘lung carcinoid tumors’ (also called lung carcinoids). However, this type of cancer is relatively uncommon amongst most people and LCTs also tend to grow a whole lot slower than the other more common lung cancer types
In order to understand lung cancer and why it occurs, let us study the lungs first.
The lungs are two large organs located in the chest region of the body and are roughly analogous to sponges. They help us breathe by absorbing oxygen and getting rid of carbon dioxide as we inhale and exhale.
Cancer effectively interferes with this ability by destroying the alveoli or small air sacs in the lung. As the cancer progresses and destroys healthy tissue, the lung and its surrounding organs cannot work properly, leading to disruption in their ability to perform their tasks. If left untreated, this disease can prove fatal indeed.
While lung cancer can strike anyone at any time, however, there are certain causative factors that can lead to cancer.
Some of them include the following
This is one of the leading causes of lung cancer and medical research has consistently shown that smoking is one of the major causative agents for lung cancer.
Asbestos sheeting, when damaged, releases tiny particles into the atmosphere that when inhaled, can prove to be highly carcinogenic.
Currently, this is also a leading cause of lung cancer due to the fact that many cities in the world are perpetually enveloped in a pall of smog that consists of exhaust emissions from chemical plants and vehicles.
Symptoms of Lung Cancer
Some of the common symptoms of lung cancer include the following
- Chest pain
- Coughing up blood (in more advanced cases of the illness)
- Shortness of breath (inability to inhale the required amount of oxygen)
