Lung Cancer in Prezi How do people get lung cancer? People may get cancer from many different ways: Smoking,Asbestos, Radon, Marijuana, Lung Diseases, Family History, or possibly from the environment- second hand smoke. The most populated reason
to get lung cancer was by smoking; folllowing up
were Asbestos, Radon, and second hand
smoking. Smoking In a single cigarette, there are over 400 toxic chemicals
and over 4,000 other chemicals that damages the lungs.
One of those toxic chemicals is the tobacco, this chemical
is known to be 80% responsible from getting lung cancer.
The possibilities of getting lung cancer gets higher, depending
on how much the smoker smokes the cigaretted often
and how deeply the smoke is inhaled. Asbestos Asbestos are fibers that breaks up into tiny particles, these particles
may be inhaled, and occur lung cancer. These particles damage the
tissues in the lungs, as it gives higher risks of getting lung cancer
than smoking. Radon Who is at risk for Lung Cancer? What is the treatment for Lung Cancer? What is the signs and symptons of Lung cancer? Where can I get more informations? What are the complications of Lung Cancer? How is lung Cancer diagonised? What is Lung Cancer? How can Lung Cancer be prevented? How common is Lung Cancer? Radon is a radioactive gas produced by the natural breakdown of uranium. These radioactive gas may not be sensed. These chemicals aren't dangerous in the outdoors, but are more concentrated in the indoors, which may cause Lung cancer. Second Hand Smoking. Bibliography http://www.health-alliance.com/cancer/lung/risk_factors.html Non-smokers who breathe on other people's smoke
have a slightly high possibilty of having lung cancer. This
is because, when a non-smoker breathes on the smoke,
they as well breathe in the nicotine and tobacoo in the
cigarette; without breathing on to the cigarette. http://www.meds.com/lung/guide/u_lung.html Lung Cancer is a disease that causes uncontrollable cell growth in the lungs.As more uncontrollable cell grows, these cells form tumors to cause clogs on to the lungs. This is a very serious problem because these tumors prevents the lungs to function properly. This causes the body to give more pressure to the heart and may even cause heart attacks. Coughing, lack of breath, and lose of weight are also causes from the lung cancer. It is also known that lung cancer cells do not stay in one certain place,and the abnormal cells eventually spread around the body; causing the body to not function as it was suppose to do. The symptons/signs of Lung Cancer are when the patients cough for most of time, then change into shortness of breathing. Another examples is when coughing blood, loss of appetite, and fatigue. These are all examples of symptons when having Lung Cancer. Some unlikely symptons are: when hardness in swallowing, pain in the right ribs, and swellings in the face.
You may earn more informations from a doctor, web source (for example google, "Lung cancer" and earn more informations), the bibliography in this prezi,and BOOKS! http://www.cancerhelp.org.uk/type/lung-cancer/about/lung-cancer-symptoms Smokers are in great risk for getting Lung Cancer. Even though the risk of getting Lung Cancer depends on age, sex, and the time period of smoking; these are all risks that may make a person get Lung Cancer. Secon hand smokers and family lines are another riskers that may have Lung Cancer, if they had breathed on the smokers's smoke or a member of the family that shares the blood- line. Lung Cancer is populated all over the world. Lung cancer is the most common cause of death due to cancer in both men and women throughout the world. The American Cancer Society estimates that 219,440 new cases of lung cancer in the U.S. will be diagnosed and 159,390 deaths due to lung cancer will occur in 2009. According to the U.S. National Cancer Institute, approximately one out of every 14 men and women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer of the lung at some point in their lifetime. Although most of the time, people diagonise lung cancer in their body, even after the testings. Lung Cancer is tested by blood, CT scans, and other ways to check if the tubes of the lungs are healthy or not. Afterwards, lung cancer are decided either the body had response on the small cells cancers. If there was response, the person had cancer; if not, the person was healthy. The treatment for Lung Cancer is by surgery. The surgery takes place to
remove the lungs and using a new one, or to kill all the abnormal cells in
the body. Although there are more surgerys classified by each tissue or
condition of the lungs in the surgery, this is the treathment for Lung Cancer.
Taking medicines are another factor in order to support the tired body before
and after surgery, and to help from the abnormal cells to refunction again. chemotherapy, targeted agents, and radiation therapy may all be used to treat lung cancer as well. Lung Cancer may be prevented from the follow lists:
Not Smoking
Continuous Exercise<-- helps the heart and lung stronger
Staying away from smokers to prevent second hand smoking
Eating Healthy
Test home for Radon
Drink alchol for moderation
By these simple ways, you may prevent Lung cancer easily in your life. The complications of Lung Cancer are:
Fluid around the heart, between the lung and chest walls can cause shortness of breath in lung cancer.
Further spread of the cancer
Side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy
Cough out blood
There are many more complications, but the main complications are: coughing and shortness of breathing.
