  • peripheral
  • Patients often present with a peripheral lung mass . (icnet.uk)
  • For unknown reasons, it often arises in relation to peripheral lung scars. (wikipedia.org)
  • The peripheral location of adenocarcinoma in the lungs may be due to the use of filters in cigarettes which prevent the larger particles from entering the lung. (wikipedia.org)
  • clarification needed] Deeper inhalation of cigarette smoke results in peripheral lesions that are often the case in adenocarcinomas of the lung. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although the definitions of "central" and "peripheral" can vary between studies, GCCL are consistently diagnosed much more frequently in the lung periphery. (wikipedia.org)
  • small cell lung
  • BACKGROUND: Non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) is a complex malignancy that owing to its heterogeneity and poor prognosis poses many challenges to diagnosis, prognosis and patient treatment. (ox.ac.uk)
  • In the early 1960s, small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) was recognized for its unique biological behavior, including a much higher frequency of widespread metastasis at diagnosis, and a higher frequency of sensitivity to chemotherapy and radiation therapy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Early studies suggested that patients with SCLC fared better when treated with chemotherapy and/or radiation than when treated surgically, while non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) patients generally did better after surgery, and usually did not respond well to chemoradiation. (wikipedia.org)
  • LCC is differentiated from small-cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) primarily by the larger size of the anaplastic cells, a higher cytoplasmic-to-nuclear size ratio, and a lack of "salt-and-pepper" chromatin. (wikipedia.org)
  • The two main types are small-cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) and non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). (wikipedia.org)
  • While there have been no randomized clinical trials of targeted agents in combined small-cell lung carcinoma (c-SCLC),[citation needed] some small case series suggest that some may be useful in c-SCLC. (wikipedia.org)
  • variants
  • Because these variants have differing genetic, biological, and clinical properties, including response to treatment, correct classification of lung cancer cases are necessary to assure that lung cancer patients receive optimum management. (wikipedia.org)
  • This GWAS-MPE approach can give not only more precise effect estimates, even larger effects, for specific molecular subtypes of the disease, but also insights into pathogenesis by linking genetic variants to molecular pathologic signatures of disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • mutations
  • A study published in Biofactors, 2015 demonstrated that dietary curcumin can prevent lung cancer caused by Benzo[a]pyrene and prevents its mutagenic action (ability to cause mutations that cause cancer). (turmericforhealth.com)

  • tyrosine
  • While a very large number of agents targeting various molecular pathways are being developed and tested, the main classes and agents that are now being used in lung cancer treatment include: Inhibitors of Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI's):erlotinib (Tarceva)[unreliable medical source? (wikipedia.org)
  • Molecular
  • Targeted therapy of lung cancer refers to using agents specifically designed to selectively target molecular pathways responsible for, or that substantially drive, the malignant phenotype of lung cancer cells, and as a consequence of this (relative) selectivity, cause fewer toxic effects on normal cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • MPE started as analysis of risk factors (such as smoking) and molecular pathologic findings (such as KRAS oncogene mutation in lung cancer). (wikipedia.org)
  • How many molecular subtypes? (wikipedia.org)
  • smokers
  • A report of US Public Health Service states that average male smoker had an approximately 9-fold to 10-fold risk for lung cancer, whereas heavy smokers had at least a 20-fold risk. (turmericforhealth.com)
  • Never smokers account for 25% of the lung cancer cases reported worldwide. (turmericforhealth.com)
  • According to the Nurses' Health Study, the risk of large cell lung carcinoma increases with a previous history of tobacco smoking, with a previous smoking duration of 30 to 40 years giving a relative risk of approximately 2.3 compared to never-smokers, and a duration of more than 40 years giving a relative risk of approximately 3.6. (wikipedia.org)
  • unreliable medical source] ROS1 fusion-positive patients tend to be younger, with a median age of 49.8 years, and never-smokers, with a diagnosis of adenocarcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • chemotherapy
  • Curcumin derivatives are also found to sensitize lung cancer cells to chemotherapy due to their antioxidant property and reduces drug resistance. (turmericforhealth.com)

  • symptoms
  • Some of the major symptoms of lung cancer include body mucus, coughing, shortness of breath, wheezing, appetite loss, weight loss and chest pain. (sbwire.com)
  • Many of the symptoms of lung cancer (poor appetite, weight loss, fever, fatigue) are not specific. (wikipedia.org)
  • Diagnosis
  • In addition, increased demand for diagnosis is also restraining the growth of the global lung cancer therapeutics market. (sbwire.com)
