caused by an abnormal, continual multiplying of cells that can result in lumps, masses, or malignant tumors, which begin in the lining of the bronchi
caused by a mutation in your DNA (abnormality in the lung cells)



surgery
chemotherapy
radiation therapy
targeted therapy
biological therapy

Lung cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in lungs – divide to form tumours
Accompanied by several symptoms - usually not noticeable in early stages
TWO TYPES:
non-small cell lung cancer
small cell lung cancer
Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
Small Cell Lung Cancer
not very common
grows more quickly
2 stages: limited & extensive

most common
3 types: adenocarcinoma, large cell carcinoma & squamous cell carcinoma
4 stages
SURGERY
RADIATION THERAPY
Bronchoscopy
bronchoscope
biopsy - sample of cells
RISKS
vs.
OF A BRONCHOSCOPY
nose bleeds
bleeding/collapse of lung
infection
allergic reactions
leakage of air from the lung
Family History
Other/Past Illnesses
Radon Gas
Average # of Lung Cancer Cases vs Age
Air Pollution, Heavy Metal Workers/Miners, Exposure to Radiation
