Lung cancer treatment in private clinic abroad
Most lung cancers do not cause any symptoms until they have spread, but some people with early lung cancer do have symptoms. If you go to your doctor when you first notice symptoms, your cancer might be diagnosed at an earlier stage, when treatment is more likely to be effective. The lung cancer treatment can be preformed abroad. The two types of lung cancer, which grow and spread differently, are small cell lung cancers (SCLC) and non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC). Lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer deaths in both men and women in the U.S. and worldwide.
The most common symptoms of lung cancer are:
• A cough that does not go away or gets worse;
• Coughing up blood or rust-coloured sputum (spit or phlegm);
• Chest pain that is often worse with deep breathing, coughing, or laughing;
• Weight loss and loss of appetite;
• Shortness of breath;
• Feeling tired or weak;
• Infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia that don’t go away or keep coming back;
• New onset of wheezing.
Cigarette smoking is the principal risk factor for development of lung cancer and passive exposure to tobacco smoke (passive smoking) also can cause lung cancer.
