Lung Cancer Treatment

Bronchial benign tumors are usually removed surgically because they can clog the bronchi and long may become malignant.
Sometimes performed surgery on the cancer other than small cell carcinoma that has not spread. Approximately 10-35% of cancers can be removed surgically, but surgery does not always bring healing.

Approximately 25-40% of patients and isolated tumor grows slowly, has a life expectancy of up to 5 years after his illness was diagnosed. Patients should perform routine checks for lung cancer recurrence in 6-12% of patients who had undergone surgery.

Before surgery, performed lung function tests to determine whether the remaining lung can still perform its functions well or not. If the result is ugly, it is not possible to do surgery.
Surgery is not necessary if:
- The cancer has spread beyond the lung
- Cancer is too close to the trachea
- Patients have serus circumstances (such as heart disease or lung disease is severe).



Radiation therapy performed in patients who can not undergo surgery because they have other serious illnesses.
The purpose of radiation is to slow cancer growth, not for healing. Radiation therapy also can reduce muscle pain, superior vena cava syndrome and suppression of the spinal cord. But radiation therapy can cause inflammation of the lungs (pneumonitis due to radiation), with symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath and fever. These symptoms can be reduced by corticosteroids (eg prednisone).

At the time of diagnosis, small cell carcinoma almost always has spread to other body parts, making it impossible to do surgery. These cancers are treated with chemotherapy, sometimes radiation therapy disetai.

Patients with lung cancer who experienced a lot of lung function decline. To reduce respiratory problems may be given oxygen therapy and drugs that dilate the airways (bronchodilators).

How i survived lungs cancer.
I was diagnosed of lung cancer in 2011 and the doctor (oncologist), because i was a chronic smoker who started smoking from 16 and told me i had just two years to live that my lungs had been damaged, that even on the best medication i still had two years. I needed help because i was scared to die and i did chemotherapy, radiotherapy and it was unable to treat or help me. I coughed nearly every minute. In my death clock counting just 6 months remaining, if you knew me then i was good as dead because the cancer had eaten me up. My wife was fortunate enough to contact doctor Amber, a herbal doctor who came and treated me in our house using his medicine and that is how i was saved (where western medicine and methods failed), that was the greatest decision my wife had taken aside marrying me. Today i am totally fine without any symptoms of cancer, it was all confirmed by my oncologist that i am clean. Do not die in silence or rely only on western medicine herbal medicine is very effective. You can contact the doctor on (drambermurray@gmail.com) for more information about his treatment.
