When Lung Cancer Is Diagnosed, Fast Blood Tests Can Help Save Lives
Researchers suggest in a new study that administering blood tests to lung cancer patients at the time of diagnosis may be able to hasten treatment decisions. Conducted by scientists with Gundersen Health System in Wisconsin, the study's authors stress the effectiveness of cancer treatment is dependent on timely information, and blood tests are an important reference. Lead author Dr. Jennifer Mattingly said in a press release, "Waiting for test results on biopsy material to determine the correct course of action can delay treatment for several weeks, sometimes months." According to UPI, researchers examined 17 patients who had been diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer. Investigators used GeneStrat genomic test to target specific cancer mutations, and a VeriStrat proteomic test to provide prognostic information. The results were available within 72 hours, and were used to make treatment decisions and improve prognostic conversations with patients. Mattingly added, "The rapid and accurate results of these tests significantly decreases the wait time between diagnosis and treatment." The research was published in the American College of Chest Physicians journal CHEST. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2016/10/17/Blood-tests-at-time-of-lung-cancer-diagnosis-may-speed-up-treatment/1591476731665/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

According to a research, almost 40% of patients suffering from cancer were diagnosed when the cancer has evolved in the late 3rd stage, meaning it has already made big progress. This is as it is because lung cancer shows no symptoms and it is hard to notice it in its early stages. Fortunately, there are 7 signs that indicate lung cancer and can help you in diagnosing it before it is too late. 1. Persistent Cough Pay attention to the way you cough. If the cough is gone after one or two weeks, it means you have caught a regular cough due to a respiratory infection or a cold. However, if you suffer from the same cough even after two weeks it might indicate to lung cancer. If you cough out mucus it is mandatory to visit your doctor and make the relevant tests on your lungs and chest, for example: x-rays. If there are some other changes in your cough, such as: cough with hoarse sound, cough with blood or extreme mucus, then you must not waste anymore time and visit your doctor. 2. Being out of Breath Shortness of breath is another lung cancer symptom and it is caused because of two possible things: the first is there is probably a fluid accumulated in your chest as a result of a lung tumor; the second is there is narrowing (blockage) of the airways. Therefore, if due to some daily actions you feel shortness of breath, which did not make you feel like it before, such as bringing groceries, climbing up stairs or some other actions, then it is strongly recommended to visit your doctor. 3. Pain in the chest, back or shoulders Even though pain caused in the above mentioned areas is not often connected with lung cancer, it may be caused as a result of metastasis on the chests, lungs, or enlargement of the lymph nodes or the ribs. It does not matter if you feel healthy, strong, constant or dull, what matters is that you must visit your doctor in order to make sure what is going on with your health condition. 4. Whistling/Wheezing If you notice a wheezing or whistling sound while you breathe, pay a visit to your doctor. However, you must not panic because all those sounds appear when airways are constricted or inflamed. The sounds may be a sign of something easily curable. If the sounds are prolonged then you should visit your doctor for sure. 5. Weight Drop When having lung cancer, you may experience sudden weight drop. This is due to cancer cells using body’s energy that has been obtained from food. 6. Pain in the bones If you are feeling severe pain in the bones or any other part of your back during any time of the day or night, then you need to pay attention to this serious symptom and consult with a doctor. 7. Continuous headache If you are constantly feeling headache then you might be dealing with lung cancer that had spread to the brain. However, headache occurrence may not always be linked with metastases in the brain. This headache may be caused because the lung tumor presses the main vein that transfers blood from the upper part to your heart. How to be able to diagnose lung cancer at early stage? Since x-rays cannot discover lung cancer on time, there are CT scans (computed tomography) which can help in the process of discovering the sneaky disease on time and reducing the possibility of death when dealing with lung cancer. To sum everything up, you should not wait for any kind of sign to occur in order to go to the doctor, make an x-ray or do a CT scan. Any person between 55 and 80 years of age and the ones who have been active smokers in the last 15 years should make the tests as soon as possible in order to prevent lung cancer.

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.

Will you help researchers grow 3D lung tissue in a lab to beat cancer?
Find out why Dr Michaela Frye and her team want to grow real human lung tissue in their lab and how you can help fund this project https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/growing-3d-lung-tissue-in-the-lab-to-beat-cancer Dr Michaela Frye and her team from The University of Cambridge study specialised cells found within certain tissues in the body, known as stem cells. They’re special because they have the potential to develop into all the different cell types that make up that particular tissue, so play a vital role in renewing important parts of the body. But in some cases this process can go wrong, and some researchers believe that misbehaving stem cells may have a role to play in cancer. Following their discovery of a ‘stem-like’ cell in the lungs, which Michaela says can “develop into multiple lung cells,” her team is now setting its sights on lung cancer. “We want to grow these stem cells into 3D lung tissue in a bioreactor,” says Ferda, one of Michaela’s research team. They believe that once they have the 3D models of the lungs growing in the lab they will be able to test what happens when lung cancer cells are introduced, and whether the model could be useful for testing new treatments. “It could be game-changing,” says Ferda.

Tracking cancer with a blood test
Blood tests that fish for either tumour DNA or cancer cells in patient blood samples are showing great promise. This type of blood analysis is helping Cancer Research UK scientists and doctors better understand the biology of cancer from its earliest origins to when it spreads around the body. And it has the potential to offer a new way of monitoring how patients respond to treatment, as well as how drug resistant tumours may begin to emerge.

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.

Cancer Diagnosis: initial tests, biopsy and tissue diagnosis, staging and the MDT
How are cancers diagnosed? When a doctor suspects that a patient may have cancer, they will order initial tests, depending on exactly what is suspected, in order to further investigate their concern. They will then refer their patient to the relevant specialty doctor. If a suspicious lesion is seen on a scan or other investigation, a tissue sample, also known as a biopsy, needs to be taken in order to see under the microscope whether the tissue is indeed cancerous. A team of clinicians involved in the care will meet and discuss the case - this is known as a multi-disciplinary meeting or MDT. MDTs often contain physicians, histopathologists (who look at biopsy samples to give a tissue diagnosis), radiologists (who look at scans to stage cancers), surgeons, oncologists and specialist nurses.

Mayo Clinic Minute: Blood-based lung cancer test shows promise
In a new study by Mayo Clinic and the molecular diagnostics company Exact Sciences, a blood-based cancer test has shown high accuracy for detecting lung cancer at all stages. "We were very pleased to see those results," says Dr. David Ahlquist, a Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist who previously worked with Exact Sciences to develop a colon cancer test called Cologuard. "This new test approach that targets novel DNA markers had a sensitivity of 96 percent for lung cancer detection at 94 percent specificity." Doctors say further research is needed, but the test shows promise for becoming a valuable new tool in the fight against lung cancer, the No. 1 cancer killer in the U.S. "We know that we can save lives if we find it early enough," says Dr. David Midthun, a Mayo Clinic pulmonologist. "And, potentially, we could find it even earlier with a blood test than with a CT scan." In this Mayo Clinic Minute, Drs. Ahlquist and Midthun explain how the test works and why it has the potential to change the way you’re screened for lung cancer. Jeff Olsen reports.

Lung Cancer and Diagnosis!
Lung cancer, also known as lung carcinoma, is a malignant lung tumor characterized by uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. This growth can spread beyond the lung by the process of metastasis into nearby tissue or other parts of the body. Most cancers that start in the lung, known as primary lung cancers, are carcinomas. The two main types are small-cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) and non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). The most common symptoms are coughing (including coughing up blood), weight loss, shortness of breath, and chest pains. The vast majority (85%) of cases of lung cancer are due to long-term tobacco smoking. About 10–15% of cases occur in people who have never smoked. These cases are often caused by a combination of genetic factors and exposure to radon gas, asbestos, second-hand smoke, or other forms of air pollution. Lung cancer may be seen on chest radiographs and computed tomography (CT) scans. The diagnosis is confirmed by biopsy which is usually performed by bronchoscopy or CT-guidance.

9 Early Signs of Lung Cancer
Lung cancer may not produce any noticeable symptoms in the early stages. In approximately 40 percent of people diagnosed with lung cancer, the diagnosis is made after the disease has advanced. In one-third of those diagnosed, the cancer has reached stage 3. Cough that won't quit Be on alert for a new cough that lingers. A cough associated with a cold or respiratory infection will go away in a week or two, but a persistent cough that lingers can be a symptom of lung cancer. Don't be tempted to dismiss a stubborn cough, whether it is dry or produces mucus. See your doctor right away. They will listen to your lungs and may order an X-ray or other tests. Change in a cough Pay attention to any changes in a chronic cough, particularly if you are a smoker. If you are coughing more often, your cough is deeper or has hoarse sound, or you are coughing up blood or more mucus than usual, it's time to make a doctor's appointment. If a family member or friend experiences these changes, suggest that they visit their doctor. Breathing changes Shortness of breath or becoming easily winded can also be possible symptoms of lung cancer. Changes in breathing can occur if lung cancer blocks or narrows an airway, or if fluid from a lung tumor builds up in the chest. Make a point of noticing when you feel winded or short of breath. If you find it's difficult to breath after climbing stairs or performing tasks you could do before without having a hard time breathing, don't ignore it. Pain in the chest area Lung cancer may produce pain in the chest, shoulders, or back. An aching feeling may not be associated with coughing. Tell your doctor if you notice any type of chest pain, whether it is sharp, dull, constant, or comes and goes. You should also note whether it is confined to a specific area or is occurring throughout your chest. When lung cancer causes chest pain, the discomfort may result from enlarged lymph nodes or metastasis to the chest wall, the lining around the lungs called pleura, or the ribs. Wheezing When airways become constricted, blocked, or inflamed, the lungs produce a wheezing or whistling sound when you breathe. Wheezing can be associated with multiple causes, some of which are benign and easily treatable. However, wheezing is also a symptom of lung cancer, which is why it merits your doctor's attention. Don't assume that wheezing is caused by asthma or allergies. Have your doctor confirm the cause. Raspy, hoarse voice If you hear a significant change in your voice, or if someone else points out that your voice sounds deeper, hoarse, or raspier, get checked out by your doctor. Hoarseness can be caused by a simple cold, but this symptom may point to something more serious when it persists for more than two weeks. Hoarseness related to lung cancer can occur when the tumor affects the nerve that controls the larynx, or voice box. Drop in weight An unexplained weight loss of 10 pounds or more may be associated with lung cancer or another type of cancer. When cancer is present, this drop in weight may result from cancer cells using energy. It could also result from shifts in the way the body uses energy from food. Don't write off a change in your weight if you haven't been trying to shed pounds. It may be a clue to a change in your health. Bone pain Lung cancer that has spread to the bones may produce pain in the back or in other areas of the body. This pain may worsen at night while resting on the back. It may be difficult to differentiate between bone and muscle pain. Bone pain is often worse at night and increases with movement. Additionally, lung cancer is sometimes associated with shoulder, arm, or neck pain, although this is less common. Be attentive to your aches and pains, and discuss them with your doctor. Headache Headaches may be a sign that lung cancer has spread to the brain. However, not all headaches are associated with brain metastases. Sometimes, a lung tumor may create pressure on the superior vena cava. This is the large vein that moves blood from the upper body to the heart. The pressure can also trigger headaches.

Lung Cancer - How to do Thoracotomy Surgery for Lung Cancer
https://goo.gl/uYrmsd Thoracotomy Surgery for Lung Cancer by Dr Majid Ahmad Talikoti Lung surgery is a type of medical procedure (Thoracotomy) that is performed on a patient with severe lung problems. This is done especially when a mass is found in the lungs. Likewise, it is done in cases where the lung wall is weak or fluids are collected inside the lungs. Under such cases, lung surgery is necessary to assess the level of the problem and to treat the problem. There will be cases when a part of the lung has to be removed or sometimes, all of it will have to be taken away. This will depend on the surgeon's recommendation, as to what process is necessary for a patient's condition. Lung surgery is necessary to assess the lung problem even if non-invasive imaging tests such as chest x-ray, CT Scans and MRI has already detected mass, weak lung wall or fluids in the lungs. The reason is that these imaging tests do not have a way of knowing if the mass found inside the lungs is benign or already malignant. Only surgery can detect or assess the depth of the problem. The procedure of lung surgery involves entering the chest wall in order to have access to the lungs. There are two types of lung surgery available today. The procedure can either be a thoracoscopy or a thoracotomy. Thoracoscopy is much easier and a less invasive lung surgery procedure than thoracotomy. In thoracoscopy, a surgeon uses a thin tube with a small camera and passes it through a small incision in the chest to view inside of the lungs with a video monitor. There are cases when thoracoscopy is done, a surgeon will insist to perform thoracotomy, too. Thoracotomy is the old way of doing lung surgery. A large incision is made on the chest when surgery is being done so as to view the lungs directly. Mayoor Patel is the writer for the website http://www.surgery.wares-are.us/.

Diagnosis and Screening of Lung Cancer
Learn more about lung cancer at http://www.YouAndLungCancer.com This animation explains how most patients with lung cancer are diagnosed. Some patients are diagnosed early (before they feel symptoms) because their doctors notice something in a chest x-ray or another test that was done for other reasons. Doctors use several methods and tests for diagnosing lung cancer and this animation will help you to discuss these options with your doctor. This animation also reviews people who are at higher risk for lung cancer and whether they should be screened for lung cancer. Screening is very important to increase the chances of detecting lung cancer early. The earlier the diagnosis the better the outcomes.

How do ALK-inhibitors work in ALK-positive lung cancer?
Each year lung cancer causes over 1.59 million deaths worldwide, more than any other cancer. Approximately 85% of lung cancer cases are a type of lung cancer called non-small cell lung cancer, and of these 5% are anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-positive. This type of lung cancer can be effectively targeted by a type of drug called an ALK-inhibitor, but how do they work?

I have lung issues after taken for pneumonia the medicine Ciprofloxacin and levequin Antibiotics that abscesses my whole upper left lung and part of my upper right lung. Now I am lift with 17% Lung function trying to struggle to survive. I know my only hope is to detoxify and regenerate my body cells and repair the damage as best I can. My life is in jeopardy if I don't get help immediately. I can't eat have lost 10lbs. Last 6weeks. I know I have got to detoxify and I need help Knowing which products to be taking… 21:36 – Jacqueline - When I was 48,(2010),I was feeling so good, trying to eat healthy, going to the gym, I felt stronger then ever.  I rarely would take medication, even for headaches, would rather grin and bare it.   Later that year I was diagnosed with Low grade Lymphoma,  the protocol for me was wait and see.   Quarterly I would get blood tests, everything was stable.  The beginning of 2016, I had a cough in which I couldn't shake, by August 3 my blood work showed the my white blood cells were considerably down.  I had to do a CT scan, it showed an 11cm mass between my lung and heart.  On August 20, I had another CT scan scheduled biopsy, in which they accidentally nicked a vein or artery.  I needed an emergency sternonomy for this to be repaired… 33:50 – Blu - Herbal tea's, well I don't know if you got my first email if not hey computers an the send button. Well I mixed two different types of tea's one the first is a immune system booster and the other the second one is a stronger tea that is for antioxidant super tea. Well let's just say they both did there jobs and the bad part was I do security overnight with no restroom. The nearest restroom is 25-35 minutes out well I drank the tea's and went to work that night, never again will I do that they both cleaned my insides out very well, an in record time cause I got pulled over and a ticket for that lol so that's my mistake well hope you get this email. Thanks for the education on fruits and herbs teas and inform everyone that the gold dust is just dust nothing more DO NOT TAKE NOR BUY ANYTHING THAT SAYS MONOGOLD ANYTHING. ITS A SCAM had it investigated by the FDA as well as the FTA fraud in all was possible. 39:37 – Tochi - My name is Chioma, I have been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and Graves' disease. I have been on carbimazole and i am not getting any better.  I have watched some of your videos and a lot talks about eating more fruits and taking herbs. I stay in Nigeria. Please could you kindly advise on what fruits in particular i could take and how i could get the herbs. Also i would appreciate it if you could tell me if i should go on a juice fast or just cut out gluten, diary and caffeine. 43:51 – Yelena – My 9 year old son has been diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma Stage 1 cancer. What diet or herbals would you recommend to order for him? 48:37 – Martial - Im male, 53, vegan for 20 years, I think Im a good weight for my height. I thought I was in pretty good shape but my lower back has been getting worst. I have to do a squat to get low enough to brush my teeth and wash my face in the morning. Used to be that if I stood too long, it would start to hurt. Then it was if I sat too long.. Now it's all the time. I wake up and its already painful. Bought an expensive foam bed was supposed to help. does nothing. Im wearing Obis form back support, taking (plant based) glucosamine daily. I try some stretching, yoga moves, made it worst. Ive experimented with all kinds of pain relief creams. Ive tried hot baths with bath salt and on the worst times, I break down and take an advil or two. Ive been out of work for two years. I try to advertise for services but no one calls and if they do, they expect much less cost. I apply for work weekly but now fear that If I got a job I wouldn't be able to do it. My savings are dwindling which adds to depression. Who's going to hire a 53 year old man that has a hard time walking let alone much else.

Killing of human non-small cell lung cancer cells by TRAIL
The video of an old experiment performed in the El-Deiry Lab shows H460 human non-small cell lung cancer cells being killed in less than 4 hours after exposure to the TNF-Related Apoptosis Inducing Ligand TRAIL added to the culture media. TRAIL is a potent inducer of cancer cell death through induction of programmed cell death. At the molecular level, TRAIL binds to pro-apoptotic receptors at the cell surface and this signals activation of proteins known as caspases inside the cell. Caspases are proteases that cleave proteins within the cell leading to cellular death of the tumor cells. Normal cells are protected in part through the expression of so-called decoy receptors on their cell surface. Decoys bind to TRAIL but do not communicate the death signal inside the cell. TRAIL is part of the immune system and is produced by natural killer cells and other cells to suppress cancer and its metastases. There are several drug candidates in clinical testing that activate the TRAIL signaling pathway to kill tumor cells.

Using liquid biopsies to hunt for tumour cells
Getting a biopsy of lung cancer is challenging for doctors and for the patient. Professor Caroline Dive and her lab are developing new ways to study lung cancer using just a simple sample of blood. They’re working on tests that can pick up circulating tumour cells in a patient’s blood that have broken off from the tumour. This could give doctors access to valuable information about a patient’s disease and could help monitor their response to treatment.

How To Prevent Lung Cancer, Asthma, Bronchitis & Improve Your Lung Health!
I shared some ideas about how to prevent lung cancer, asthma, bronchitis, COPD and even emphysema. Obviously I'm not a doctor and these are just a small list of ideas that might help improve your lung health. Don't take my advice. Do your own research when it comes to your lungs. Lung cancers and lung diseases are on the rise. My mom recently asked me what she can do so I'm sharing some ideas that might give you more rabbit trails to explore to keep your lungs breathing and working at top levels. The list of health protocols, tools and practices isn't exhaustive by any means but they might be able to peak your interest to continue further research. Because lung cancer and lung diseases are on the rise, I wanted to share with you the research I've been doing. If you know anybody with lung related issues, please share this with them so that they can continue to learn. Also if you have other things that I should add to the list to improve lung health, please comment below! Thanks guys!!!

Development of blood tests for early lung cancer
Dr Oxnard speaks with ecancer at the 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting about the prospects of a simple blood test for cell-free DNA (cfDNA) to detect lung cancers. He discusses how 3 assays for targeted sequencing, whole-genome sequencing and whole-genome bisulfites sequencing can detect the circulating biomarkers of lung cancer, and considers how these could eventually be incorporated into screening and care. For more on these results, watch his presentation of the results at the conference, and read our news coverage here. https://ecancer.org/news/14113.php Sign up to ecancer for free to receive tailored email alerts for more videos like this. ecancer.org/account/register.php

Blood Test spots Cancer a year early using ctDNA analysis
Researchers have taken an important step toward better lung cancer treatment by using blood tests to track genetic changes in tumors as they progress from their very earliest stages. With experimental tests that detect bits of DNA that tumors shed into the blood, they were able to detect some recurrences of cancer up to a year before imaging scans could, giving a chance to try new therapy sooner. It's the latest development for tests called liquid biopsies, which analyze cancer using blood rather than tissue samples. Some doctors use these tests now to guide care for patients with advanced cancers, mostly in research settings. The new work is the first time tests like this have been used to monitor the evolution of lung tumors at an early stage, when there's a much better chance of cure.

Lung Cancer: An Overview
Lung cancer is one of the most common types of cancer, behind breast and prostate, and the most common cause of cancer death. The vast majority of cases are related to cigarette smoking. They can be divided in to two broad types: non-small cell and small cell lung cancer. They most often present with a prolonged cough, or haemoptysis (coughing up blood). They are diagnosed with imaging that will include a chest x-ray, CT scan, and Tissue diagnosis is usually with bronchoscopy and biopsy. Treatment includes surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy and choice varies with the histological type and stage of the tumour. Please subscribe to the channel for more videos!
