What Is Lung Cancer?

Lung cancer refers to the development of cancerous cells and tumours in the lungs. These are two sponge-like organs located in the chest. These are important for breathing processes and aid in oxygen intake and release of carbon dioxide.

Lung cancer has become quite common and is increasingly becoming the leading cause of death across the globe. People who smoke are at higher risk of developing this disease. However, it may also occur in non-smokers. Depending on the number of cigarettes smoked and the increasing length of time, the risk factors of the disease increase.

What are the Causes of Lung Cancer?

Smoking is one of the primary causes of lung cancer. People exposed to secondhand smoke for long periods are also vulnerable to developing this disease. The lungs are lined by a layer of cells that starts getting damaged in the cases of prolonged smoking.

Many carcinogens included in cigarette smoke have the ability to alter lung cells. At first, the body might be able to fight off the damage and heal it, but as time goes on, the damage gets worse and can even cause abnormal behaviour that causes the cells to proliferate uncontrollably.

In addition, a family history of lung cancer, radiation therapy of any type in the past, and exposure to radon gas, asbestos, or other carcinogens are risk factors that may also result in lung cancer.

The lung cancer ayurvedic treatment involves using the therapeutic measures to ensure a better treatment course.

Types of Lung Cancer

Based on the structure and appearance of lung cancer cells dividing inside the lungs, lung cancer has been divided into two types.

  • Small cell lung cancer: This type of cancer occurs in the body of heavy smokers and is generally a less common occurrence than others.
  • Non-small cell lung cancer: This is a term that includes several sub-categories of lung cancer. Some of them are adenocarcinoma, squamous carcinoma, and large cell carcinoma.

Stages of Lung Cancer

  • During the occult stage, the cancer cells can be picked up in mucus. It is also called hidden carcinoma as it cannot be detected through imaging techniques or biopsy.
  • Stage 0 is where the tumour size is very small and it has not entered properly inside the lungs.
  • Stage 1 is reached when cancer cells are present in lung tissues but haven’t reached the lymph nodes.
  • At stage 2, the infection may start spreading to your lymph nodes around the lungs.
  • During stage 3, the infection spreads fastly in the nymph and the middle of the chest.
  • During stage 4, the cancer starts spreading throughout your body and may reach bones, brain, and liver as well. When cancer starts spreading from the spot where it started to a distant body part, it is called metastatic cancer.

Signs and Symptoms of Lung Cancer

It is very difficult to identify and detect the symptoms of lung cancer at its early stages. Usually, the symptoms become noticeable when the disease has advanced. These are

  • Shortness of breath
  • Headache and chest pain
  • Blood while coughing
  • Development of cough that does not go away
  • Hoarseness and bone pain
  • Weight loss without any intention of doing so

What Could Be The Possible Complications?

It can create blood vessel clots, which can lead to strokes or heart attacks. Thrombocytosis is most common in persons with advanced lung cancer. However, like many cancer patients, you may have blood that clots more easily, increasing your chances of severe blood clots.
