Lung Cancer - Overview

Lung Cancer

A lung is a part of the respiratory system. These lungs are in the chest, placed one on each side of the heart. The right lung has 3 main parts which are called lobes. The left lung is a bit smaller and has only 2 lobes. The lungs are protected and cushioned by a thin layer of covering called the pleura. Lung cancer starts in the cells of the lung when a group of cancer cells cancerous (malignant) tumour grow and destroy the nearby tissue. It can also spread (metastasize) to other organs of the body. When cancer starts in lung cells, it is called as the primary lung cancer.

A Lung cancer treatment in India is followed by a surgical procedure in which the surgeon which remove all or part of a lung to further removes all the cancerous cells in the tissue. The cells present in the lung sometimes change and no longer grow or behave normally resulting in non-cancerous (benign) tumor such as hamartoma and papilloma. But in some of the cases, changes into the lung cells can cause cancer.

Lung cancers are Broadly classified into non–small cell lung cancer and small cell lung cancer based on the type of cell in which cancer started. Your surgeon will work to remove the lung cancer and a margin of healthy tissue by the following procedures :

  • Lobectomy when the surgeon removes any part of the lung.
  • Wedge resection when a small section of lung that contains the tumor along with a margin of healthy tissue is removed.
  • Pneumonectomy when the surgeon removes the entire lung.
  • Sleeve resection when the surgeon removes a larger portion of the lung, but not an entire lobe.

  • Then Mediastinoscopy is done to get a visual of the thoracic cavity which is often done just before surgery to know if cancer has already spread to the lymph nodes between the lungs.
