1 Answer:

Hi Linda,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

The lungs are internal organs that have a very important role in delivering oxygen throughout the body. Lung cancer is characterized by excessive growth of lung parenchyma cells that are uncontrolled and malignant.

There are 2 main types of lung cancer, including:

SCLC (small cell lung cancer) NSCLC (non small cell lung cancer) When you have cancer, lung function becomes ineffective. As a result, in advanced conditions, a series of symptoms can appear, such as:

Chronic cough (more than 2 weeks), often accompanied by bloody phlegm Shortness of breath Chest pain Easily tired, weak Loss of appetite Significant weight loss Hoarseness, difficulty swallowing Pale, bulging fingertips Dizziness, headache Pain in body parts others, and so on. However, objective examinations are needed, ranging from X-rays, sputum tests, CT scans, to lung tissue biopsies to confirm the diagnosis of lung cancer.

The main cause of lung cancer is due to smoking habits, both active and passive. In addition, exposure to pollution, radiation, and various other chemical compounds can also increase a person's risk of developing lung cancer. Therefore, always live a healthy lifestyle, protect yourself from exposure to radiation and harmful chemicals. And most importantly, stay away from cigarettes.

That's our explanation. For more details, try to consult directly to the doctor.

I hope this helps.
