The Early Symptoms and Signs of Lung Cancer

August 31, 2017 0 53 2 minutes, 59 seconds read

Last year, the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) gave a report citing the rapid emergence of lung cancer cases, which are estimated to touch an alarming figure of 1.4 lac in 2020. Looking at the statistics, it is quite obvious that the disease has spread its deadly roots all across the country and the time has come that people should start taking preventive steps.

One of the main reasons behind this surge is the late diagnosis among the patients. As lungs cancer do not show visible symptoms until it has reached an advanced stage, it becomes quite difficult to provide proper treatment. Even though people witness some early symptoms of lung cancer, their unawareness makes them ignore such signs. This ignorance and negligence later prove to be fatal.

Therefore, it is very necessary that everyone should know about such signs so that they can get the diagnosis done on time and save their lives. Taking a progressive step towards being aware, we have listed down the early symptoms and signs of lung cancer. Read them and be safe!

Persistent Cough

If you have been suffering from a cough that does not stop even after two weeks, then there are possibilities that you may have lung cancer. It can be either a dry or wet coughing with mucus, but if it persists for an unusually long time, it’s better to take some steps. Don’t ignore such chronic cough and rather consult a nearby doctor to get an early screening.

Blood in Cough

Another symptom appears when your constant cough becomes quite deep and hoarse with some amount of blood as well. You may also cough up rust colored phlegm (sputum). If you suffer from these changes in your coughing, you must immediately seek medical attention.

Chronic Chest pain

Along with the issues related to coughing, the person suffering from lung cancer also feels chronic chest pain. The pain can also spread to shoulders or back. The reason behind such pain can be the result of enlarged lymph nodes or metastasis to the chest wall, the lining around the lungs, called pleura, or the ribs.

Wheezing and Breathlessness

Shortness of breath or the whistling sound produced when one breathes can also be related to lung cancer. This happens when the airways become constricted. Though there can be many other easily treatable causes behind it, you are advised to take a doctor’s appointment to diagnose the issue for it may be a sign of lung cancer.

Hoarse and Rough Voice

Changes in voice may also indicate a problem with your lungs. Hence if you feel that your voice has become significantly deeper, hoarse, or raspier, you should plan to visit a doctor. Note that hoarseness in a voice that lasts for more than two weeks can occur when the tumor affects the nerve that controls the larynx.

Apart from the above listed early signs and symptoms of lung cancer, one can also experience weight loss, bone pain, headache, weakness or fatigue, etc., which may also be the result of lung cancer. Also, if you have been an active smoker or have a history of smoking, you are unfortunately at higher risk of lung cancer as compared to others. Therefore, you must never ignore these signs. Remember, an early diagnosis can save you from this deadly disease and help you see a healthy tomorrow.

To help you fight lung cancer, Max Healthcare provides holistic and integrated care by consolidating views of experts 24 by 7. We also have established a Delhi's First Standalone Cancer Daycare Centre in Lajpat Nagar exclusively for cancer patients.

Treating Lung Cancer with a Pill

April 14, 2017 0 57 2 minutes, 1 second read

Do you know Lung Cancer is one of the most common cancers seen in males? 18.2% of total cancer deaths have been due to lung cancer so the speculation is that in developing countries there is going to be an epidemic of Lung Cancer.  

In this dismal scenario, Dr R.RANGA RAO explains us about the advancements made in preventive as well as therapeutic strategies, which might bring some ray of hope for patients.

Preventive Strategies in Lung Cancer: Initiatives like an increase in warning pictures on cigarette packaging and launch of mobile support to quit tobacco are important initiatives that are taken by the health ministry. A CT scan was done as a screening programme for smokers that showed that the people had the probability of getting lung cancer.

Therapeutic Strategies in Lung Cancer: The core advancement in understanding the cancer genome is by obtaining the cancer tissue through biopsy or by drawing patient’s blood and analysing the cancer cells (liquid biopsy). Better understanding regarding the genetic changes in cancer cells has led to the development and introduction of medicines known as “Targeted Therapy”- this therapy causes disruption in the process of carcinogenesis i.e. conversion of a normal cell to the cancer cell. Few advantages of this therapy are:

  • Ability to act more specifically on cancer cells to lower the risk of damage to normal cells.
  • Prevents the growth and spread of cancer cells

Few examples of Targeted Therapy are: Enzyme Inhibitors, Apoptosis inducing agents (Causes Cancer cells to die due to change in protein if cancer cells), Angiogenesis Inhibitors (Inhibits the process of formation of new blood vessels in the tumor and stops the blood supply to the tumor, thereby resulting in the death of cancer cells).

NOTE: Many of these agents are taken as a pill so that the patient can continue with their normal lifestyle. These have lesser side effects as compared to chemotherapy and therefore the quality of life is better.

Another ray of hope is “IMMUNOTHERAPY”, which reactivates the patient’s own immune system so that the advanced stage lung cancers can be treated effectively.

Radiation and Surgery are the other two non-pharmacological treatment options for lung cancer. However, the choice of treatment is based on the stage of cancer and the patient’s overall health status. With the availability of options like radiotherapy, surgery, targeted therapy and Immunotherapy, many patients can now be treated without chemotherapy.
