What is Lung Cancer?

Cancers of the lungs arise from irregular cell formations in lung tissue that multiply beyond normal rates. They can be specialized to attack neighbouring tissues or to form tumors. As another type of cancer, lung cancer can occur in any area of the lungs and different parts of the respiratory tract.

Well, before we proceed, let’s identify different forms of lung cancers:

What is Lung Cancer?

What are the different types of lung cancer?

Lung cancers mainly consist of two broad categories: SCLC and NSCLC. Based on the cellular type, which includes the SCLC and NSCLC, this classification is based on how the tumor cells look when directly observed under the optical microscope.

About 10% to 15% of all lung cancers are SCLC. This type grows faster than any other carcinoma. SCLCs generally spread very rapidly throughout the body invading many organs in return.

One of the most common types of cancer in the lungs is non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and approximately 85% of all cases are NSCLC. It can be classified into three major categories according to the type of cells found in the tumor.

Principal subtypes are adeno, squamous cell, and large cell carcinoma.

Adenocarcinoma

Adenocarcinoma begins in cells that normally release substances such as mucus.

Generally, adenocarcinoma occurs near the boundary of the lung and is more likely to be detected before it has spread.

Squamous cell carcinoma

It starts with squamous (Thin, flat scales like fish skin) cells that mostly affect smokers.

Large cell carcinoma:

It can occur anywhere in the lungs. It grows fast and spreads making it difficult to handle.

The lung may have other tumors along with the most common forms of this disease.

Lung carcinoids

Lung carcinoids make up less than 5% of lung tumors. Most of these tumours grow slowly. 

Other lung tumors

These include Adenoid cystic carcinoma, lymphoma, and sarcoma among others which are different types of cancer that attack people’s lungs.

We should first get acquainted with the different phases of lung cancer.

What are the different stages of Lung Cancer?

Currently, the stages of Lung Cancer are divided into five; however, it is also worth to understand the earlier staging that includes stages 0, I, II, III and IV.

The stage of cancer indicates where the cancer is situated with other organs, its size and how it has progressed to other factions of the lungs or other organs if it is lung cancer.

Imaging and bronchoscopy are unable to identify cancer at this stage. This means that doctors cannot identify its exact location since its size is not fully understood and is subject to fluctuation. However, sputum (a sample from the lung) or bronchial enemas (a sample of cells from the inner lining of the air passage) may contain cancerous cells.

Physicians going through the layer of mucous membrane of respiratory system are likely to identify existing strange cells. This type can be cancerous but are not invasive, and has no connection with other parts of the body.

The cases in stage 1 are categorized into two sub-types:
