Lung Cancer Progression And Staging - Manipal Hospitals
The most common form of lung cancer is non-small cell lung cancer. It is staged according to the size of the tumour and whether it has spread to the lymph nodes or other organs of the body. There are 4 stages of lung cancer. In the occult stage, cancer cells are accumulated in the fluids in the lungs and there is no tumour yet. In stage 0, cancer cells are found in the airway passages. Stage 1A and 1B are invasive cancer as tumour grows in the inner lining of airways and then spread into the bronchus. In stage 2A, it spreads to the lymph nodes on the same side of the chest. Stage 2B has two categories in which the cancer has invaded the diaphragm, chest walls and membranes around the heart and the tumour has grown in the bronchus and lymph nodes. In stage 3A, it spreads to lymph nodes and other structures nearby. In 3B, tumour may be of any size and spread to more lymph nodes on the same side and to nearby structures too. In stage 4, tumour has spread in other parts of the body. This informative animated video explains in detail about the staging and progression of lung cancer. The staging of lung cancer refers to the extent of the disease. If one has the most common form of lung cancer or non-small cell lung cancer, it will be staged according to the size of the tumour and whether it has spread to lymph nodes or other nodes of the body. In occult or hidden stage, the cancer cells are found in the coughed up mucus or in other fluids, but no tumour can be seen in the lungs. Stage zero is not considered invasive because the cancer cells are found in the innermost lining of the air passages, but have not grown through it. Stage 1A is known as the invasive cancer, because the tumour has grown the inner lining of the airways into the deep lung tissue.

How does cancer spread through the body? - Ivan Seah Yu Jun
View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/how-does-cancer-spread-through-the-body-ivan-seah-yu-jun Cancer usually begins with one tumor in a specific area of the body. But if the tumor is not removed, cancer has the ability to spread to nearby organs as well as places far away from the origin, like the brain. How does cancer move to these new areas and why are some organs more likely to get infected than others? Ivan Seah Yu Jun explains the three common routes of metastasis.

5 Sure Signs and Symptoms of Lung Cancer You Should Not Ignore

Your lungs are two spongy organs in your chest that absorb oxygen when they inhale and release carbon dioxide when you exhale. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, both among men and women. Lung cancer takes more lives each year than cancers of the colon, prostate, ovary, and breast combined. People who smoke have the highest risk of lung cancer, although lung cancer can also occur in people who have never smoked. The risk of lung cancer increases with time and the number of cigarettes you have smoked. If you stop smoking, even after smoking for many years, you can significantly reduce your chances of developing lung cancer. Change in breathing If you have trouble breathing or are short of breath very easily, it could be a sign of a lung disease, including lung cancer. If a tumor in the lung blocks the passage of air, you may feel this shortness of breath. It could also happen because the carcinoma fluid can accumulate inside the lungs. Coughing blood Lung cancer can cause bleeding in the airways, which can cause you to hear blood (hemoptysis). Sometimes the bleeding can become severe. The treatments are available to control bleeding. Sudden weight loss If there is a drastic decrease in your weight without a diet or training regimen to base it, it could be a signal that your body is sending to show that a tumor is growing inside you. In general, cancer cells absorb all the energy in the body, resulting in weight loss. However, this is not only a sign of lung cancer but also of any other type of cancer. Chest pain Lung cancer can cause pain in the chest, shoulders or back. Whether the pain is acute and constant or boring and incessant, be sure to notify your doctor immediately. Chest pain can be indicative of many health problems, including lung cancer. Signs for smokers If you are a smoker and have noticed some change in the way you a cough, you should see a doctor immediately. If you are coughing more often, more roughly or coughing up blood, it could be a sign of lung cancer. If you feel a constant whistle in your chest when you breathe, do not ignore it. It could be a tumor blocking the passage of air.

Operation of lung cancer
The deadliest form of cancer in the U.S., involving cells that originate in the bronchi or lung. The term includes four cell types: squamous cell (epidermoid) carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, large cell (anaplastic) cancer, and small cell (oat cell) cancer. INCIDENCE In 2013, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) estimated that more than 228,000 people would be diagnosed with lung cancer and that about 159,500 would die of the disease. It is the second most common cancer in both men and women. CAUSES The vast majority are caused by carcinogens in tobacco smoke, including secondhand smoke. Other risks include exposure to carcinogenic industrial and air pollutants (asbestos, uranium, arsenic, nickel, chromium, iron oxides, coal dust, and radioactive dusts), concentrations of radon gas, and familial susceptibility. SYMPTOMS AND SIGNS Symptoms may include persistent cough, chest pain, dyspnea, weight loss, or hemoptysis. Changes in normal respiratory patterns or hoarseness, as well as pneumonia, bronchitis, epigastric pain, symptoms of brain metastasis, arm or shoulder pain, or swelling of the upper body are other possible signs. DIAGNOSIS Diagnostic tests include a chest x-ray, computed tomography (CT) scan, cytological sputum analysis, and bronchoscopy. Other tests include needle biopsy, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), thoracentesis, thoracotomy, mediastinoscopy, or pulmonary function tests. TREATMENT Treatment includes lung surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy (including epidermal growth factor receptor blockers) often provided serially or in combination. PROGNOSIS People with localized lung cancer have an approx. 5-year survival of 50%. People with widely metastatic lung cancer have a 5-year survival of less than 5%. PATIENT CARE Staging determines the extent of the disease and aids in planning treatment and predicting the prognosis. Lung cancer is relatively difficult to cure but much easier to prevent. Children and adolescents should be discouraged from smoking tobacco products, and current smokers should be assisted in their efforts to quit, e.g., through referrals to local branches of the American Cancer Society (ACS), smoking-cessation programs, individual counseling, or group therapy. SCREENING AND PUBLIC HEALTH Chest x-rays do not show small, early cancers, but computed tomography (CT) scanning can be used to screen people who have a long history of smoking and evidence of emphysema. In this high-risk group, screening detects the disease in its early stages when it is most likely to be curable. Smokers over the age of 55 who undergo annual lung cancer screening with low-dose CT scans have improved survival relative to those who do not. However, the public health costs of mass screening are high compared with the cost of encouraging smokers to quit or teaching teenagers not to start smoking.

Staging of Lung Cancer
Learn more about lung cancer at http://www.YouAndLungCancer.com This animation explains how lung cancer staging is a system that doctors use to describe or classify the overall size and spread of the main tumor. Doctors need lung cancer staging information to help plan a patient’s treatment. Lung cancer is classified into several stages - the higher the stage the more advanced the spread of the disease and the more aggressive the treatment strategy. In Stage 0 the cancer is only in the top layers of the cells lining the lung’s air passages and this is the easiest stage to treat. In Stage IV the cancer has spread to the other lung, lymph nodes outside the lungs, and other parts of the body.

Types And Staging Of Lung Cancer - Manipal Hospitals
Lungs cancer is of two types; Small cell lungs cancer and non-small cell lungs cancer. In limited stage small cell lung cancer, cancer cells are found in one lung and the nearby lymph node. In extensive stage, cancer cells spread to the other lung, lymph nodes and even to the other part of the body. This informative animated video explains in detail about the staging and progression of lung cancer. The staging of lung cancer refers to the extent of the disease. If one has small cell lung cancer, it is often staged by simpler two part system because treatment options don’t vary much between the more detailed stages used to describe non-small cell lung cancer. In limited stage small cell lung cancer, cancer cells are found in one lung and may be found in the tissues between the lungs and in nearby lymph nodes. If cancer is found in the other lung in the lymph nodes on other side of the chest point other parts of the body it is called extensive stage.

Tuberculosis (TB): Progression of the Disease, Latent and Active Infections.

Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Tuberculosis, or TB, is one of the oldest and most common infectious diseases. About one third of the world population is believed to be infected with TB. Fortunately, only about 5% of these infections progress to active disease. The other 95% of infected people are said to have a dormant or latent infection; they do not develop any symptoms, and do not transmit the disease. Tuberculosis is caused by a rod-shaped bacterium, or a bacillus, called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. An infection is initiated following inhalation of mycobacteria present in aerosol droplets discharged into the atmosphere by a person with an active infection. The transmission process is very efficient as these droplets can persist in the atmosphere for several hours and the infectious dose is very low – less than 10 bacilli are needed to start the infection. Once in the lung, the bacteria meet with the body’s first-line defense - the alveolar macrophages. The bacteria are ingested by the macrophages but manage to survive inside. Internalization of the bacilli triggers an inflammatory response that brings other defensive cells to the area. Together, these cells form a mass of tissue, called a granuloma, characteristic of the disease. In its early stage, the granuloma has a core of infected macrophages enclosed by other cells of the immune system. As cellular immunity develops, macrophages loaded with bacteria are killed, resulting in the formation of the caseous center of the granuloma. The bacteria become dormant but may remain alive for decades. This enclosed infection is referred to as latent tuberculosis and may persist throughout a person's life without causing any symptoms. The strength of the body’s immune response determines whether an infection is arrested here or progresses to the next stage. In healthy people, the infection may be stopped permanently at this point. The granulomas subsequently heal, leaving small calcified lesions. On the other hand, if the immune system is compromised by immunosuppressive drugs, HIV infections, malnutrition, aging, or other factors, the bacteria can be re-activated, replicate, escape from the granuloma and spread to other parts of the lungs causing active pulmonary tuberculosis. This reactivation may occur months or even years after the initial infection. In some cases, the bacteria may also spread to other organs of the body via the lymphatic system or the bloodstream. This widespread form of TB disease, called disseminated TB or miliary TB, occurs most commonly in the very young, the very old and those with HIV infections. Tuberculosis is generally treatable with antibiotics. Several antibiotics are usually prescribed for many months due to the slow growth rate of the bacteria. It’s very important that the patients complete the course of the treatment to prevent development of drug-resistant bacteria and re-occurrence of the disease.

Signs of Lung Cancer   You Might Have These Symptoms
Twiter : https://twitter.com/HealthB60542247 Google + https://goo.gl/ZXvG4p 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 most common symptoms of lung cancer are: A cough that does not go away or gets worse Coughing up blood or rust-colored sputum (spit or phlegm) Chest pain that is often worse with deep breathing, coughing, or laughing Hoarseness 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 If lung cancer spreads to distant organs, it may cause: Bone pain (like pain in the back or hips) Nervous system changes (such as headache, weakness or numbness of an arm or leg, dizziness, balance problems, or seizures), from cancer spread to the brain or spinal cord Yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice), from cancer spread to the liver Lumps near the surface of the body, due to cancer spreading to the skin or to lymph nodes (collections of immune system cells), such as those in the neck or above the collarbone

Lung cancer stages
Lung cancer stages http://www.cancercenter.com/lung-cancer/stages/tab/non-small-cell-lung-cancer-stage-4/ Making an educated treatment decision begins with the stage, or progression, of the disease. Using the results from your diagnostic tests, your care team at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) will develop an appropriate treatment plan for you. If you have been recently diagnosed, we will review your pathology to confirm you have received the correct diagnosis and staging information, and develop a personalized treatment plan for you. If you have had a cancer recurrence, we will perform comprehensive testing and identify a treatment approach tailored to your needs. Small cell lung cancer staging Small cell lung cancer makes up less than 20 percent of lung cancers and is typically caused by tobacco smoking. It often starts in the bronchi, then quickly grows and spreads to other parts of the body, including the lymph nodes. Small cell lung cancer stages are classified in two ways: Limited stage: The cancer is found in one lung, sometimes including nearby lymph nodes. Extensive stage: Cancer has spread to the other lung, the fluid around the lung (the pleura) or to other organs in the body. Non-small cell lung cancer staging Non-small cell lung cancer staging uses the TNM system: Tumor (T) describes the size of the original tumor. Lymph node (N) indicates whether the cancer is present in the lymph nodes. Metastasis (M) refers to whether cancer has spread to other parts of the body, usually the liver, bones or brain. A number (0-4) or the letter X is assigned to each factor. A higher number indicates increasing severity. The letter X means the information could not be assessed. For instance, a T1 score indicates a smaller tumor than a T2 score. Once the T, N and M scores have been assigned, an overall stage is assigned. Stages of non-small cell lung cancer: Occult stage non-small cell lung cancer: Cancer cells are found in sputum, but no tumor can be found in the lung by imaging tests or bronchoscopy, or the tumor is too small to be checked. Stage 0 non-small cell lung cancer: Cancer at this stage is also known as carcinoma in situ. The cancer is tiny in size and has not spread into deeper lung tissues or outside the lungs. Stage I non-small cell lung cancer: Cancer may be present in the underlying lung tissues, but the lymph nodes remain unaffected. Stage II non-small cell lung cancer: The cancer may have spread to nearby lymph nodes or into the chest wall. Stage III non-small cell lung cancer: The cancer is continuing to spread from the lungs to the lymph nodes or to nearby structures and organs, such as the heart, trachea and esophagus. Stage IV non-small cell lung cancer: The cancer has metastasized throughout the body and may now affect the liver, bones or brain.

Angiogenesis inhibition in lung cancer
Maurice Pérol, MD, Léon-Bérard Cancer Centre, Lyon, France talks about angiogenesis inhibition in lung cancer across treatment lines. VEGF pathway activation in tumors leads to new vessel development in tumors, or angiogenesis. Several inhibitors of this pathway are used in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In first line, bevacizumab is the only approved drug for NSCLC and consistently improves the response rate and the progression-free survival (PFS) for patients treated with platinum-based chemotherapy, albeit with a smaller effect on overall survival (OS). In second line, two angiogenesis inhibitors have recently been developed; ramucirumab and nintedanib. Ramucirumab, a monoclonal antibody against VEGF, has demonstrated a significant improvement in response rate, PFS and OS in combination with docetxel in both squamous and non-squamous histologies. Nintedanib is a TKI targeting VEGFR and has shown to improve PFS and OS in adenocarcinoma. Dr Pérol also talks about the ULTIMATE study assessing the combination of weekly paclitaxel and bevacizumab in a second line setting. This regimen is well tolerated and provides a large increase in response rate and PFS which is useful in second line setting, especially for frail patients. Dr Perol highlights that for patients with aggressive disease and low levels of PDL-1 expression, there is a very high risk of disease progression with current immunotherapies such as nivolumab. In such patients chemotherapy combined with an anti-angiogenesis agent is probably a safer treatment regimen as it presents a lower risk of disease progression. Recorded at the 2016 World Conference of Lung Cancer (WCLC) of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) in Vienna, Austria.

EGFR liquid biopsies: a step forward in lung cancer monitoring
A liquid biopsy is a simple, non-invasive alternative to surgical biopsies that enables doctors to use a simple blood sample to discover a range of information about a tumour. Traces of the cancer’s DNA in the blood can give clues about which treatments are most likely to work for a specific patient. The test can detect epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene mutations, which occur in 10-35% of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

The Significance of Brain Metastases in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
Robert C. Doebele, MD, PhD, associate professor in the Division of Medical Oncology at the University of Colorado, discusses the significance of brain metastases in patients with non–small cell lung cancer (NCSLC). The current standard of care for patients with NCSLC is crizotinib (Xalkori), but this treatment does not have a high response rate and does not allow for good control of brain metastases. Entrectinib (RXDX-101) is currently being tested in clinical trials and has proven to have better control on brain metastases. Because patients with lung cancer are prone to brain metastases, entrectinib may be the better treatment option. It proves to allow better upfront control of the brain metastases in patients who are ROS1-positive. This is a preventative strategy that will lead to longer progression free survival in patients with NCSLC, Doebele says.

Lung Cancer Series - ALK Gene-mutated Lung Cancer (English Version-B)
Lung cancer is the top cancer killer in Hong Kong, contributing to more than 3000 deaths every year. The prevalence of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC), a subtype of lung cancer, has been increasing in recent years. A Japanese clinical study, published in 2007, showed that NSCLC can be caused by mutation and rearrangement of a gene called anaplastic lymphoma kinase, the ALK gene. The study showed that approximately 3-7% of these NSCLC patients would have such gene rearrangement, which can stimulate the survival, proliferation and metastasis of tumour cells. To target this life-threatening cause of cancer, recent years there has been ground-breaking discovery of ALK gene-targeted therapy. Many patients received positive response to this therapy and their disease progression has been controlled. We are honoured to have Dr Patricia Poon, a clinical oncologist in Hong Kong in this series to tell us more about this new cancer treatment regimen and methods of getting ALK gene testing; we also invited two guests, Jennifer and Tammy to share with us their stories of fighting lung cancer. We also set up the ALK Lung Cancer Patient Care Group on Facebook to provide a platform for lung cancer patients to share their experiences and to support each other on their roads of fighting cancer. https://www.facebook.com/groups/224232227778127/ Cancer Information, your companion to fighting cancer http://www.cancerinformation.com.hk/

What is Lung Cancer?
This animation is from our new program http://www.YouandLungCancer.com and explains how healthy lungs function and how lung cancer can occur. Non-small cell lung cancer and small cell lung cancer are the two major types of lung cancer. Physicians use noninvasive tests and invasive tests to diagnose lung cancer. Noninvasive tests include Chest x-rays, and CT scans and PET scans. Invasive tests include Bronchoscopy; Endobronchial ultrasound; Thoracentesis; Biomarker testing; and Biopsies, such as Fine needle aspiration (or FNA), Core needle biopsy, and surgical lung biopsy. Physicians need lung cancer staging information to plan treatment. Lung cancer is classified into numerous stages - the higher the stage the more advanced the spread of the cancer and typically the more aggressive the treatment. In Stage 0 cancer it is only the top layers of cells in the lining of air passages in the lungs. This is the easiest stage to treat with highest survivorship. Stage IV lung cancer is the most difficult to treat, having spread to the other lung, the lymph nodes outside the lungs, and other parts of the body.

EBUS and CT-guided biopsy in repeat biopsies of patients with progressive lung cancer
Neal Navani, MA, MBBS, MRCP, MSc, PhD, University College London, London, UK, discusses the differences in the application of endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) and CT-guided biopsies at diagnosis versus repeat biopsy after disease progression (second-line). Both techniques are well established for diagnosing lung cancer and have traditionally been used for initial diagnosis. However, there is an increasing need to perform a repeat biopsy of tumours that are progressing after first-line treatment. This can provide insights into why the tumour has become resistant to the treatment and inform tailored second-line treatment decisions. Dr Navani explains differences in the application of these techniques between the first-line and second-line settings, highlighting that patient consent to a repeat biopsy is critical. He also discusses reasons behind the reduced sensitivity of the techniques in the second-line setting and how these need to be reflected when discussing options with patients. Recorded at the 2017 meeting of the British Thoracic Oncology Group (BTOG) in Dublin, Ireland.
