Selection of an expert lung cancer surgeon is very important in getting safe and successful cancer treatment. Lung cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in the developed world. The vast majority - over 80% of lung cancers are caused by smoking tobacco or by indirect exposure to tobacco smoke. Like most cancers, the risk of lung cancer increases with age. The longer you smoke, the greater your risk. Very few cases are diagnosed in people under 40 and the most common age of diagnosis is between 70 and 74. There are four main types of lung cancer: small cell lung cancer, squamous cell carcinoma, large cell carcinoma and adenocarcinomas. Tobacco smoking is strongly linked to the first three but only weakly linked to adenocarcinomas. However, this type of lung cancer has been linked to the use of low-tar cigarettes. There are a variety of symptoms of lung cancer, including difficulty breathing, coughing up blood, chest pain, weight loss, general fatigue and loss of appetite. Some lung cancers do not cause any noticeable symptoms until they are quite advanced and have spread to other parts of the body. Lung cancers are sometimes first detected on routine chest X-rays. However, the main method of diagnosis is bronchoscopy, in which a thin, flexible tube is inserted down the airways, allowing doctors to see the inside of the lungs and even take a biopsy. A CT scan, liver ultrasound or bone scan may also be used to find out if the cancer has spread. Drug treatment is the usual treatment for small cell lung cancers, because they usually spread too quickly for surgery to be useful. Depending on the type of tumor and how advanced it is, chemotherapy can be used in different ways: either to shrink the tumor before surgery or after surgery to kill off any remaining cancer cells. With the availability of very good treatment facilities, it is now become possible to cure cancer at its later stage also, and it is being cured all over the world.
