What is Lung Cancer?
Lung cancer, also known as “Carcinoma of the lungs” is an ailment that starts within the lungs and later if untreated replicates and spreads to other tissues in the body. It is characterised by the uncontrolled growth of harmful cells in tissues of the lungs.
How Does Lung Cancer Develop?
Lung cancer can be diagnosed due to smoking but there’s also many other reasons. Medical and legal professionals believe that if the lung cancer develops in the presence of asbestosis or other substances such as sawdust or dust, then the person may still have a claim. However, this requires proof of occupational exposure or prolonged exposure.
How Can You Tell If You Have Lung Cancer?
Scientifically, it’s not possible to tell whether you are suffering from lung cancer without being examined in the hospital. However, before you visit a hospital, there are symptoms that will first show, and these symptoms are coughing (heavy coughing that comes with blood), difficulty in breathing, chest pains and a drastic decrease in weight. When these symptoms present themselves before you, it is advised that you visit a physician for further medical tests. Confirmation is done using a process called biopsy and is performed by a CT-guidance or bronchoscope.
What are the Causes of Lung Cancer?
The most common cause of lung cancer is long-term exposure to cigarette/tobacco smoke. According to statistics, 80-90% of lung cancer patients are said to be heavy smokers of tobacco, and non-smokers only account for 10-15 % of lung cancer cases. Though not scientifically verified, among the non-smokers, their condition is often ascribed to a combination of exposure to radon gas, air pollution, asbestos and second-hand smoke.
