Lung Cancer -- Is It Time To Start Screening?
Many smokers and former smokers worry about their risk of developing this disease. Here are some common questions and answers that reveal what most medical experts think about early detection of lung cancer.
Lung Cancer
One of the most common cancers, lung cancer usually occurs when a cancer-causing agent, or carcinogen, triggers the growth of abnormal cells in the lung.
Adenocarcinoma of the Lung
Like other cancers, adenocarcinoma is the growth of abnormal cells.
Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Lung
Lung cancer (or carcinoma) is one of the most common cancers diagnosed in both men and women.
Large Cell Cancer of the Lung
Large cell cancer is a type of non-small cell lung cancer. Large cell lung cancers tend to grow quickly and spread.
Carcinoid Tumors of the Lung
Carcinoid tumors have been called "cancers in slow motion." They grow slowly and are less likely than other tumors to spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body.
Small Cell Lung Cancer
Small cell cancer is a type of lung cancer. Small cell lung cancer has been called oat cell cancer because the cells resemble oats when seen under a microscope.
