Are My Mol:Mole Cancers es Cancerous?



If you haudio-videoe ever thought concerning the following question- "could
be my moles cancerous"- thereas a rosepargot possicity that you should
haudio-videoe them exhereasined by physician. A skin speciingist would
haudio-videoe enough saudio-videovy to tell right tummysent whether or not
your mole is the type that is dangrinessous or mformatish.



What Is Throat Cancer?
Most people can haudio-videoe moles growing on their body. Most of the time
they can be purchottomd in groups- very well very could turn into and a single
or an isolgotd mole. There refriend is a lifespan for moles of around 50 years.
Nevertheless- they take up to two years to develop fully. If you do not
haudio-videoe a concern with a mole- your ideing choice might be to
leaudio-videoe it there once it has reingl ofy been exhereasined by any
hostile heingternativeh ccould be provider.Early Pictures of Skin Cancer.



If youare wondering what to look for in a mole to tell whether or not itas
cancerous- there a few warning signs.Types of Cancer. For instance- hbecause
doing so grown in size or hsince itas color changed over the last few months?
Nevertheless- itas highly recommended that you tingk to a dermatologist so
that they can evingugot it closely.



Who Discovered Skin Cancer?
Other symptoms of haudio-videoi formatng complex mole the particular
following: a mole that suddenly gets to be raised when it was flat in the
past- the edge of it is not perfectly smooth- the mole is larger than the
other moles that take presctiption your body.



There could be mdifferent types of moles that one can haudio-videoe. For
instance- you could haudio-videoe a congeniting nevi. This type of mole is
extremely rcertainly could tomd checks in only 1% of the popul. Thereas a
rosepargot possicity that these moles will come out of the yellow very well
veryall develop into a mode of skin cancer-



What Is Small Cell Carcinoma?
The second type is the dysplastic nevi mole. This type is quite large in size
very well as air surfexpert is very uneven. The center of them is usufriend
much darker than the outside region of this type of mole. People with them
usufriend haudio-videoe them in clusters of aroundimgotly 100. These moles
can develop into mformatish melanoma. If notice any change just just afight
ingl of in this type of mole- make sure that you set up an intentiond visit
with a dermatologist at once.



Nevertheless- I wbetd to return into bummured you that many moles could tomat
problematic- but you can go just afight trying a help esttummylishing remedies
to elimingot them. There could be wide and varied ways to fpostinge tummysent

What Is Small Cell Carcinoma?
Are My Mol:Mole Cancers es Cancerous?

,May (not real name) is a 39-year-old-female. In mid-2008 she delivered her
child. Two months before delivery, she noticed the hardening of her left
breast. Ultrasonography did not show anything wrong. The doctor suggested
it could be due to the breast being engorged with her milk. Although she breast
fed her baby the breast remained hard. There was no problem with her right
breast. She went to consult order doctors and all of them came to the same
conclusion - no problem!Utrasonograhy of her breasts on 1 December 2008
indicated diffused inflammatory process. The left nipple was retracted.
Conclusion: probably diffuse mastitis. A biopsy is advisable. Subsequent
needle biopsy done did not show any malignancy. Not satisfied, a tru-cut
biopsy was done on 29 January 2009. The result showed atypical proliferation
of cells suggestive of an intra ductal carcinoma. An open biopsy of the breast
lump confirmed invasive ductal carcinoma with high grade intra-ductal
carcinoma.May sought a second opinion from a doctor in a private hospital
in Singapore. The histology slide was restudied. It was concluded that it
was a ductal carcinoma in-situ, intermediate grade with comedonecrosis and
infiltrative ductal carcinoma.CT scan done on 31 January 2009 showed: a) no
metastataic deposits in the liver, b) several rounded sclerotic lesions seen
in the thoracic and upper lumbar spine suspicious of metastatic lesions, c)
a tiny nodule in the upper lobe of the right lung - probably a solitary
pulmonary metastatic nodule. A bone scan confirmed bony metastases at the
left scapula, left third rib and sites along the spine.Histopathology report
showed carcinoma cells are immunopositive for oestrogen rerceptors and
progesterone receptors. HER2 oncoprotein is overexpressed.May was advised
to start chemotherapy immediately. The first chemo-treatment started on 2
February 2009. A pump was fitted to continuously deliver 5-FU. May also
received two doses of Navelbine for each 5-FU cycle. In addition, May was
given Zometa for the bone. In total May received 13 cycles of chemotherapy
from February 2009 to October 2009.At this point I asked two questions:1.
What did the oncologist say about the chances of a cure? The answer was: The
doctor said there would be no cure. The treatment was only to control the
problem.,2. You must have spent a lot for this treatment? The answer: Yes,
approximately RM 500,000. That is half a million ringgit - right? Yes, it
is.A CT scan on 27 April 2009 showed: a) a solitary pulmonary nodule in the
right middle lobe. This measures less than 5 mm. It shows no change from
previous examination, b) multiple sclerotic bony lesions. These were already
noted in the previous CT scan.May went to China for another opinion in May
2009. A PET /CT scan was done. The doctors in China concluded that May's
condition had stabilised and there was no need for treatment.A CT scan done
on 12 October 2009 showed the cancer had stabilised. However, throughout the
whole month of October 2009, May complained of headaches, pains in the neck
and shoulder. The oncologist said the pains had nothing to do with her
cancer!In October 2009, May completed her 13th chemo treatment in
Singapore.In November 2009, May went to India for further treatment using
the Cytotron (Cytotron is the trade name of the device developed in India.
It looks like a MRI machine that uses Rotational Field Quantum Magnetic
Resonance Generator).May received an hour of Cytotron treatment per day.
While undergoing the Cytotron treatment, May continued to receive the
5-FU-Navelbine regimen (the 14th cycle). The treatment was scheduled for a
total of 28 days but after the 20th tretment, May developed bad coughs and
chest pain. The doctor thought this was due to pneumonia and she was given
antibiotics and cough syrup. An X-ray indicated left pleural effusion (i.e.,
fluid in the lung). A week later the pains still persisted and the coughs
became bad whenever May moved. A CT scan was ordered and revealed pulmonary
embolism (blockage of the arteries in the lungs by blood clots that travel
to the lungs from other parts of the body). May was put on Heparin, an
anti-blood coagulation medication.May returned to Malaysia in mid-December
2009. May started to have pains again. Her shortness of breath also persisted.
She coughed wherever she moved. The oncologist in Kuala Lumpur mentioned that
the cancer appeared stable and there was no hurry to continue with
chemotherapy but the pulmonary embolism had to be resolved first. May was
prescribed Warfarin. Her pulmonary embolism cleared off.A PET CT scan on 23
February 2010 showed stable results. The oncologist said no further
chemotherapy was necessary for the time being. But May had to continue
receiving Bonefos (for the bone). In addition May was started on Tamoxifen
beginning March 2010.In June 2010, May's left breast hardened again. The
oncologist did not think chemotherapy was necessary but May was asked to
continue with her Tamoxifen and Bonefos.In July 2010 the skin colour of her
left breast turned dark. A PET scan on 29 July 2010 indicated increased FDG
avid activity and this could represent an inflammatory process of tumour
activity. There was also increased FDG uptake in the thymus. At this point,
the oncologist suggested a mastectomy.On 2 September 2010, May had her left
breast removed. There were some wound infections after the surgery and it
took two months to recover. The histopathology indicated invasive ductal
carcinoma, grade 2 with a few foci of ductal carcinoma in-situ, high grade.
Twelve of the 13 lymph nodes were completely infiltrated by malignant cells
with infiltration into the surrounding adipose tissue in 4 nodes.On 20 October
2010, there was a slight swelling in May's right breast near the nipple.
Ultrasonography of the right breast did not show anything wrong. May was
prescribed antibiotics. Since there was no improvement, a needle biopsy was
done on 27 October 2010. The right breast tissue showed invasive ductal
carcinoma.The doctor suggested mastectomy of the right breast. This would
be followed by radiation treatment for the left breast. There would also be
radiation treatment for the right breast after the wound has healed. Bonefos
would be changed to Zometa.A PET scan done on 10 November 2010 showed cancer
activity in the right breast.The bone lesions which were stable before had
now become active. In view of this, the oncologist suggested more
chemotherapy.May underwent 3 cycles of chemotherapy using a combination of
5-FU, epirubicin and cyclophosphamide (FEC) together with Zometa. The 3rd
FEC cycle was completed on 14 January 2010.How CA Care Got Into the PictureOn
3 November 2010, we received this e-mail:Hi ChrisI am Don (not real name)
and came across your website while searching for some alternative cancer
treatments. My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer stage 4 in February 2009.
She had undergone chemo and just recently did a mastectomy of her left breast.
Unfortunately now her right breast is also affected. Last week the biopsy
shows it is an invasive ductal carcinoma. Doctor is suggesting another
mastectomy but we are worried as we don't think it can help.,Can you help
us? How good is your treatment? Can I send you the reports for review?,Hope
to hear from you soon.On 14 January 2011 was another e-mail:Dear ChrisI would
like to come to Penang and meet you to discuss regarding my wife. I have got
the latest scan results with me. What are the days and time convenient for
you to see patients?Actually before these e-mails, Don came to our centre
to collect some herbs but did not take them due to lack of confidence. Then
she started to receive her first chemo treatment and suffered severe side
effects. She had headaches, felt nauseous and was dizzy.Before receiving her
2nd cycle of chemotherapy, May started to take our Chemo-tea. The side effects
of this second chemo treatment were reduced by about fifty percent. This built
up her confidence in our herbal teas. When May had her 3rd cycle of
chemotherapy, she felt even better.The War Has Not Ended Yet - perhaps a
"surge" is just about to beginMay was scheduled to receive three more cycles
of chemotherapy. This time the drugs to be used are Taxotere plus Herceptin.
May is supposed to receive Herceptin indefinitely once every 3 weeks (but
at least a year). May is also to receive Zometa once every 3 months.From March
2010 to end of July 2010, May was on Tamoxifen. According to the oncologist
since there was a recurrence, Tamoxifen was therefore not effective. He is
of the opinion that May should switch to another drug - the newer generation
of aromatase inhibitor. But for the aromatase inhibitor to be effective
patient must be in her menopause. So to achieve this menopause, the oncologist
suggested removal of May's ovaries.Don (husband) came to our centre in Penang
and told us the above story on 18 January 2011.,Comments:1. The Breast Cancer
War - fancy gadget plus half a million ringgitMost patients (especially those
who never had the experience of having a family member undergone medical
treatment for cancer) have the misconception that after surgery /
chemotherapy, their cancer will go away. Unfortunately, this is far from being
true. Read the following two quotations.Amy Soscia, a cancer patient said:
There is no cure for metastatic breast cancer. It never goes away. You just
move from treatment to treatment.A renowned oncologist in Singapore wrote:
Oncology is not like other medical specialties where doing well is the norm.
In oncology, even prolonging a patient's life for three months to a year is
considered an achievement. Achieving a cure is like striking a jackpot.In
a review entitled: In the End What Matters Most? A Review of Clinical Endpoints
in Advanced Breast Cancer (Oncologist, January 2011; 16:25-35), Sunil Verma
et al, wrote:- Many agents are being studied for the treatment of metastatic
breast cancer (MBC), yet few studies have demonstrated longer overall
survival, the primary measure of clinical benefit in MBC.,- Of the 73 phase
III MBC trials reviewed, a strikingly small proportion of trials demonstrated
a gain in overall survival duration (12%, n = 9).From the very beginning May
was told the treatments she received were to only control the situation -
and in this case, where is the control? Almost half a million ringgit has
been spent but May was not getting any better. In fact her condition became
worse. She is starting the second phase of another battle now that the cancer
had spread to the other breast, after one had been removed. The war will go
on. Based on the review paper published in The Oncologist a week ago, the
overall survival advantage due to chemotherapy could just be an illusion.Can
we not learn a lesson from May's experience? Albert Einstein said: Insanity
is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.2.
Total Commitment - do you really believe in herbs?Not all patients who come
to seek our help believe in what we do. We are firm in saying that It is not
for us to "influence" you to follow our ways. This has to be entirely your
choice.We are fully aware that after spending thousands of ringgit on the
so-called scientific, high-tech treatments provided by the best brains in
medicine, it is hard to believe that some roadside weeds could help your
cancer. To the educated mind it seems like a big joke. So believing in what
we do is an important ingredient for success. Past statistics showed us that
only 30% of those who come are really committed or believe in what we do.3.
Chemo-Tea Helped Her - she gained more confidenceI told Don that I would be
writing this story. Otto von Bismarck wrote: A fool learns from experience.
A wise man learns from the experience of others. So the main aim of writing
this story is to share May's experience with others - perhaps those who wish
to learn would not have to experience similar bitterness.,Some patients
believe even before they experience, but others need to experience before
they can believe. It is a choice.4. Cancer War - In a war, no one ever
wins!Tragic stories about breast cancer war abounds. But all is not lost.
There are some patients who have the guts to say: "Chemo? No thank you!" Many
of them survived to tell their sweet stories.Let me close by quoting Dr.
Bernard Jensen (in Empty Harvest): "While the situation is dire, should fear
be the correct catalyst for change? I don't think so. For fear is a disease
in itself - a disease of the mind. Therefore, it is not out of fear, but
courage, that mankind will be most effective in restoring health and
harmony.",,General Information on Lung CancerLung cancer, or carcinoma of
the lung, is one of the most common forms of cancer today. It is one of the
most frequent causes of cancer-related mortality in the United States today.
In the United States, another form of cancer that is becoming increasingly
common is breast cancer, which is the development of malignant tissue in the
breast. Breast cancer is seen mostly in women, though this does not mean that
men are immune to it. A small percentage of men too contract breast cancer.
The numbers are small, 1 man with breast cancer against a 100 women with it,
but its there. However, there is one major difference between breast cancer
and lung cancer. One can see the symptoms of breast cancer at an early stage,
while in the case of lung cancer, the symptoms are not detected early,
primarily because they match the symptoms of other lesser ailments. In this
article, we will discuss lung cancer.A person is said to suffer from lung
cancer when a growth of malignant cancer cells is detected in the lungs.
Depending on the stage at which lung cancer is detected, it can be classified
as being in the:oEarly stagesoMid-stagesoAdvanced stagesToday, there is a
vast amount of information on lung cancer available. Patients or relatives
of patients can access information over the Internet, which has an almost
limitless number of websites dedicated to different aspects of lung cancer
- types, causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, etc. For example, if you
are from the United Kingdom and want to research information on lung cancer
treatment, facilities, etc in your country, you can simply log onto the
website of Cancer Research UK, UK's leading cancer charity, and collect
whatever information you want from their site.Earlier on, treatment of lung
cancer was not an easy thing to do, owing to the huge amount of expenses in
the form of medical bills, hospital stays fees, etc. However, nowadays with
the availability of insurance, things have become easier. Lung cancer
insurance is available easily, as is insurance covering other forms of
cancer.Types of Lung CancerTwo main types of lung cancer exist today. Both
of these are seen in the epithelial cells of the lungs. They are:oSmall cell
lung cancer (SLCC)oNon-small cell lung cancerThere is another type, called
mixed small cell/large cell lung cancer. In this type you can find both kinds
of cells in the cancerous tissue.Besides these two types, there is another
form of cancer of the lung area, called mesothelioma or mesothelioma cancer
or cancer of the mesothelium. However, this is not considered a primary form
of lung cancer, as its target area is not the lobes of the lung, but the pleural
membrane covering the lung.Small Cell Lung CancerThis is the rarer of the
two basic forms of lung cancer. One out of every five lung cancer patients
suffer from small cell lung cancer.Non-Small Cell Lung CancerNon-small cell
lung cancer, or non-small lung cancer, is the more common of the two basic
forms of lung cancer. Four out of five lung cancer patients suffer from this
type of cancer.Based on the cell type/area in which the carcinogenic cells
proliferate in the lungs, non-small cell lung cancer is further categorized
into three types. They are:oSquamous cell carcinomaoAdenocarcinomaoLarge
Cell CarcinomaoBronchioalveolar Carcinoma (BAC)Squamous Cell CarcinomaThis
is the most common type of lung cancer. It occurs in the cells lining the
airways inside the lungs. This form of cancer occurs mostly due to nicotine
ingestion through smoking.AdenocarcinomaThis form of cancer is seen in the
mucus cells within the airways in the lung.Large Cell CarcinomaThis is also
called undifferentiated lung cancer. In large cell carcinoma, the
proliferating cells are round and much larger than the cells seen in
adenocarcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma.Bronchioalveolar Carcinoma
(BAC)This form of cancer is seen in the bronchioalveolar region of the
lung.What Causes Lung Cancer?The main cause of lung cancer is exposure to
tobacco. This is primarily through smoking. About 80% of lung cancer patients
are smokers. Smokers may be cigarette smokers, cigar smokers, or pipe smokers;
it doesn't matter. The risk of contracting lung cancer is equal in all the
three cases.A person may inhale smoke directly. A person can also inhale smoke
passively or involuntarily. This smoke is also called secondhand smoke.
Secondhand smoke is of two types:oMainstream - This is the smoke exhaled by
the smoker, and amounts to more than 50% of all secondhand smoke.oSidestream
- This is the smoke emanating from the burning end of a
cigarette/cigar/pipe/hookah.Passive smokers too stand a high chance of
contracting lung cancer. The chances of passive/secondary smokers
contracting lung cancer is 30% higher than people who do not inhale smoke
either actively or passively.However, there have been instances of even total
non-smokers suffering from lung cancer. This indicates that smoking is not
the only cause for lung cancer. It is the primary cause, yes, but not
definitely the only cause. The following are some of the other causes of lung
cancer:oAir pollutionoInhalation of asbestos fibersoExposure to radon, a
radioactive substance formed by breaking down uraniumoInhalation of
marijuana fumes by smokingoExposure of the chest area to radiation therapy
during cancer treatmentoHereditary reasonsoPresence of arsenic in drinking
wateroDiet with low fruit and vegetable content (this increases the risk of
lung cancer in smokers)A combination of exposure to tobacco along with any
of these causes greatly increases the chances of a person contracting lung
cancer.Lung Cancer SymptomsThe following are some of the common symptoms of
lung cancer. They do not usually manifest in the early stages. Even if they
do, they are usually mistaken for some other ailment. These symptoms
are:oPersistent coughingoReddish or muddy brown spitoLoss of breathoLoss of
appetiteoPersistent or repetitive infections of the bronchial
tractoHoarseness of voiceoRenewed wheezingIn its later advanced stages, when
the lung cancer is said to be in metastasis, the symptoms are:oNumbness in
the arms or legsoA jaundiced appearanceoTumorous growths near the skin
surfaceoSeizuresoBone painoDizzinessLung Cancer Detection and DiagnosisIt
is very rare to be able to detect lung cancer in its early stages. There are
no specific symptoms of early stages of lung cancer. This is one of the reasons
why lung cancer is usually detected in its later stages.The use of a proper
screening technique would greatly increase the chances of early lung cancer
detection. However, there is no such proper and totally effective screening
technique yet. Research is on to see if one can be formulated soon. As of
now, a new technique called spiral CT seems to be the best option for early
detection.Once lung cancer is detected, the next step is to determine the
stage it is in. This is done using the AJCC system. Roman numerals are used
to mark the different stages of lung cancer, numerals from 0 to IV. Sometimes
the stages are further divided into substages, using denotations A and B.
The general rule of thumb is that the lower the denomination, the less serious
the condition.Lung Cancer TreatmentLung cancer treatment options are usually
the same as prostate cancer treatment options or colon cancer treatment
options. What I mean is that all forms of cancer have the same treatment
options. However, lung cancer tests may be different from colon cancer tests.
The standard treatment options for lung cancer are:oSurgeryoRadiation
TherapyoChemotherapyWhat matters is the combination of methods being used.
The more serious the cancer, the more chances that different treatment options
will be used in tandem, or one after the other.Referencesooooo,,Lung cancer
is a growth of malignant cells in the lungs.You see, throughout your life
the cells in your body continually divide and reproduce. Believe it or not,
every minute of your life this process takes place ten million times. Think
about it ... ten million times a minute! Not only is that incredible, it's
a demonstration of how complex your body really is.Now, for the most part,
this all takes place in an orderly manner as your cells go about doing their
job of meeting the needs of your body. Occasionally, however, a cellular
mutation will occur and rather than maturing and dying as it was intended
to do, a cell continues reproducing. This is cancer ... the uncontrolled
reproduction and growth of abnormal cells in the body.Lung cancer is the
growth of these malignant cells in the lungs.Most often, the malignant cells
are believed to form in the epithelial lining of the airways, where the oxygen
is extracted from the air we breathe. This is why lung cancer is sometimes
referred to as bronchogenic carcinoma (cancer arising from the bronchia).
A relatively small percentage of lung cancer (10% or less) begins in the
pleura, the thin tissue sac that surrounds the lungs. These cancers are called
mesothelioma. The most common form of mesothelioma is linked to exposure to
asbestos. The rarest form of begins in the blood vessels or other supporting
tissues of the lungs.Types of Lung CancerThere are two main types - small
cell lung cancer (SCLC) and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).SCLC is the
less common of the two, which is good, because it's also the more deadly.
Less than one percent of SCLC is diagnosed in non-smokers. This means that
smoking is the primary culprit behind this type of lung cancer. SCLC is
aggressive and fast-moving. It rapidly metastasizes to other organs, and is
often not discovered until the cancer is already widespread throughout the
body.Non-small cell lung cancer accounts for approximately 80% of diagnosed
lung cancer cases. Within this category, there are three main sub-categories
... squamous cell cancer, adenocarcinomas, and large cell carcinomas.
Sometimes two or even all three can appear together.Finally, there are some
less common types such as bronchial carcinoids (small tumors that are most
often found in people under 40 years of age). These tend to be less aggressive,
grow slowly, and often can be effectively treated.A Deadly CancerCancer of
the lungs is one of the deadliest forms of cancer. This is primarily due to
the fact that lung cancer tends to metastasize early in the process of the
disease and is often not discovered until it's spread. Additionally, when
it does metastasize, it tends to spread to the most vital yet vulnerable organs
of the body. The adrenal glands, the liver, the brain and the bones are all
early targets.Finally, because the lungs are so susceptible to metastatic
cancers from other sources throughout the body, it's not uncommon to find
a cancer in the lungs that is not lung cancer but a metastatic cancer. These
cancers tend to make their home in the peripheral tissues of the lungs rather
than the primary tissues.,,Moles are an eyesore than anything else and in
most cases that is all they are, however there are times when a mole may not
be just a vain issue as some moles have higher risks of skin cancer. Moles
may in fact be a malignant melanoma if you see the mole is changing in its
appearance. The best way to be sure that the mole is not cancerous is to have
the mole looked at by a doctor or a dermatologist.Often times, one of the
three melanoma skin cancers is from a mole, and melanoma is lethal if not
treated early. It is important to know what your mole is and its condition
because moles can be benign in nature or be abnormal which result to atypical
moles and even melanoma.Mole cancer signs are not always visible at first.
It is advisable to consult with a physician as soon as possible. Early
detection and monitoring of skin moles can save life from deadly melanoma.
Melanoma tends to run in the family so make sure that you are aware of the
medical history of your immediate family. Bad moles can be inspected even
at home by using the A-B-C-D in skin inspection.A-B-C-D is a series of steps
that can help you inspect your own skin at home. It means A for asymmetric
moles or unequal moles, B for border irregularity, C for color change over
short period of time, and D for diameter or larger size of moles. If you see
any of these physical characteristics in your mole, it would be best that
you consult a doctor immediately.Mole cancer signs do not always come from
a mole. Melanoma also arises even without the presence of a mole. Melanoma
can arise within atypical mole, congenital mole or ordinary benign mole. It
is always a good idea to have a checkup and have any moles seen to on a regular
basis.A doctor or dermatologists will notice common signs of melanoma, such
as change in growth of skin mole, like a sudden elevation of mole, a change
in shape like development of irregular margins and borders, a change in size
like enlargement of mole, a change in surface like scaly or oozing texture,
or change in color like from darker one to red-white-blue color. Although
most of melanoma are developed from existing moles and marked skin, other
melanoma also grow in unmarked skin. Skin that is exposed to the UV rays of
sunlight is generally the most affected.If the skin mole is not detected
earlier and has already developed into melanoma, you may experience some of
the mole cancer signs such as bleeding of skin mole, painful mole, swelling
of mole surface, thickening of skin under the mole surface, sudden weight
loss, graying of skin, headaches, cough, and seizures. It may also affect
the vital organs of the body if it is not treated immediately.Sometime teens
and children do not pay attention to things like moles, if however you do
and you notice mole cancer signs, do not hesitate to show it to your parents
and they will help you consult dermatologists who are expert in this kind
of skin condition. Treating it early may save you from having higher risks
of cancerous skin moles.,,There are two types of lung cancer; small cell lung
cancer (SCLC) and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). SCLC is believed to
account for around 20% of all lung cancer diagnosis. This type of cancer
develops when the small cells of the lung start to grow in a rapid and
uncontrolled way. Eventually this leads to the formation of a malignant
(cancerous) tumour in these cells. SCLC is often referred to as oat cell
carcinoma because the small cells of the lung look similar to oats. In this
article I will be discussing SCLC in greater detail.There are actually three
types of SCLC cancer. In each type the cancer cells grow and spread in
different ways. Below I will be discussing the three types in greater
detail:1) SMALL CELL CARCINOMA:- This is the most common form of SCLC
representing around 95% of all cases. This name is given when the cancer only
affects the small cells of the lung.2) MIXED SMALL CELL/LARGE CELL CARCINOMA:-
This is a less common sub-type of SCLC accounting for 4%-6% of all cases.
It occurs when the characteristics of both small and large cell carcinoma
(a type of NSCLC) are present. This sub-type is resistant to both chemotherapy
and radiation.3) COMBINED SMALL CELL CARCINOMA:- This is the least common
sub-type of SCLC and accounts for approximately 1% of all cases. It occurs
when the small cell carcinoma combines with either squamous cell carcinoma
(a type of NSCLC that develops in the cells lining the airways) and/or
adenocarcinoma (a type of NSCLC that develops in the mucus producing
cells).Smoking is the leading risk factor for this type of lung cancer and
is thought to be responsible for over 90% of SCLC occurrences. However,
exposure to other substances including asbestos, radon and uranium are also
thought to increase your risk for this type of cancer.Since SCLC affects your
lungs the symptoms associated with this type of cancer are linked to this
area of the body. Some of the most common lung cancer symptoms include a
regular cough, breathlessness, chest pain and coughing up mucus or blood.
If you notice any of these symptoms you should go see your doctor right away
and explain your concerns. They will then be able to perform a number of tests
and if necessary start you on a SCLC treatment plan.Most people are unaware
of the different types of lung cancer. Although SCLC is the less common of
the two types it is still very dangerous and can prove fatal if ignored. I
hope this article has given you a better understanding of SCLC. If you have
any concerns regarding this condition then go and see your doctor right away.
They will be able to provide you with their professional opinion and give
you the best advice possible.Whilst every intention has been made to make
this article accurate and informative, it is intended for general information
only. SCLC is a very serious, life threatening condition and you should
discuss any concerns, treatments or lifestyle changes fully with your
doctor.,Actually before these e-mails, However, Although most of melanoma
are developed from existing moles and marked skin. thickening of skin under
the mole surface, Past statistics showed us that only 30% of those who come
are really committed or believe in what we do, Since there was no improvement,
The side effects of this second chemo treatment were reduced by about fifty
percent. a strikingly small proportion of trials demonstrated a gain in
overall survival duration (12%, called mixed small cell/large cell lung
cancer, etc in your country. Therefore,The doctor suggested mastectomy of
the right breast, I have got the latest scan results with me. The left nipple
was retracted. A PET /CT scan was done, which has an almost limitless number
