CT scan - Lung cancer
My mom (age:64) Asian diagnosed with lung cancer. Summary: She is diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer with rib cage bone metastasis. X-ray, CT on Thorax and Adomen, MRI on spine, blood test, Sputum cytology taken. CT scan show diffused nodules on both lung with consolidation on the upper left lobe. MRI shows compression fracture on T9 and T12 and minor press on spinal code. Blood test shows elevation of CEA tumor marker, 50x of normal reading. Sputum cytology suspect of Adenocarcinomas. Treatments: She has RT therapy for 2 weeks to treat the back pain followed by a week rest before Iressa intake for 6 days. Before the Iressa, she is on oxygen support but she is able to put it off for hours. After the iressa, she relied on the oxygen support more heavily and still breathless. There is an acute onset of dyspnea or worsening of the breathlessness, with cough and fever. She is under antibiotic and cough mixture to control the lung infection. Diagnosis (details) before treatment: Radiograph of the chest - There are extensive patchy confluent parenchymal opacities in both lungs with a larger opacity in the left upper/mid lung (measuring 3 x 4 cm); these are likely of infectious etiology. An underlying mass in the left upper/mid lung cannot be excluded. There are no pleural effusions. The heart size is within normal limits.Mild degenerative changes of the spine are noted. Blood Test: Alphafetoprotein 13 ug/L (0-9 normal) CEA 252 ug/L (0-5 normal) CA125 15 U/mL (0-35 normal) CA19-9 12 U/mL (0-35 normal) Sputum cytology - Atypical cells suspicious of adenocarcinoma (3ml of bloodstained mucoid fluid was used, 4 slides examined show a moderate cell yield. Atypical cells showing enlarged nuclei with coarse chromatin and pleomorphic nucleoli are noted. The cytoplasm are vacuolated. Microorganism and inflammatory cells including neutrophils and lymphocytes are noted in the background) CT THORAX AND ABDOMEN IV contrast-enhanced multi-slice contiguous axial sections of the thorax and abdomen were obtained. Total 90 ml of intravenous Omnipaque 350 were administered as contrast medium. Comparison was made with previous study dated 05/02/07. Diffuse subcentimeter nodules are seen in both lungs with areas of coalescence. Collapse consolidation of the anterior segment of the left upper lobe with some heterogeneous enhancement near the hilum. There is no pleural effusion detected. The tracheobronchial tree is unremarkable. Enlarged right paratracheal, pertracheal, subcarinal and bilateral hilar lymph nodes are noted. A few right supraclavicular and left axillary lymph nodes are also seen. The mediastinal vessels, cardiac chambers show normal opacification. The visualized thoracic aorta is of normal caliber with no significant thrombus formation. The liver is enlarged and again shows multiple large cysts. Mild interval increase in size of the segment 6 cyst now measuring 10.3x8.3 cm. This is seen displacing the right kidney inferiorly. No suspicious focal lesion is seen. The hepatic and portal vessels show normal enhancement. The biliary tree is not dilated. Gallstones are seen. No evidence of cholecystitis. The visualized pancreas, spleen, kidneys, adrenals and opacified bowel loops are unremarkable. Multiple sclerotic foci are noted along the sternum, thoracolumbar and sacral spine compatible with mestastasis. Compression fracture of T9 vertebral bodies noted. Metastatic body lesions involving the left scapula, right 6th, left 4th, 9th and 10th ribs are noted. Comment: - Collapse of the anterior segment of the left upper lobe with some heterogeneous enhancement near the hilum. Underlying malignancy cannot be excluded. Bronchoscopic biopsy is suggested. - The pulmonary nodules in both lungs are suggestive of metastasis. - Mediastinal lumphadenopathy - Diffuse bony metastasis as described above. - Hepatic cysts, the one in segment 6 showing mild interval increase in size. - Gallstones.

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.

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.

Does abnormal scar on lung X ray signifies a cancer lesion? - Dr. Hirennappa B Udnur
We get patients with x-ray with abnormality show scar in the lung and we are referred for it. Is it a cancer? That’s the doubt the patients family members and the patient himself will be having. How do you go about it? First when the patient comes to us, first we see the x-ray and see the scar and measure the size and the characteristics. Does it look like cancerous? There are certain radiological characteristics for it for which it really looks like cancer? How is the lung? How is the scar? Is it away from the lungs, is it above, is it below, is it looks like calcification, is there any necessity to do any investigations and we have to keep down their anxiety level down. Most of the time it will be benign, it will be a, it should be non cancerous, then you don’t have to do anything. So sometimes we just take a history. A smoking history will be taken care. So we will ask how much cigarettes they smoke and the age. Whether they are less than 40 or more than 40. If they have significant past history of smoking and more than 40, if they have a family history of lung cancer, and we need to evaluate. If the x-ray looks distinct the next step of investigation is the CT scan of the chest. And do the Ct scan we can do more than x-ray. Its more of 3 dimensional. So if it is really like a calcification is there, most of the time we ask a history. We go into the depth of the history. If you ask a previous x-ray and if it’s more than 2 years old x-ray we ask. If the 2 year old x-ray and the size is same, and we look at the doubling time of a scar lesion. If the scar is of the same size, we don’t do anything, it is probably benign. Sometimes previous history of tuberculosis, we see a granuloma and we don’t do anything. Sometimes we see a popcorn calcification, we don’t do anything for it. So if it looks abnormal in terms of if there are irregular borders are there and eccentric calcification is there and these kind of characteristics are there then we need to evaluate it. So in a CT scan when you get that kind of a picture and if the size is less than 3 whether there is a probability of lung cancer is there, so there are other investigative modalities like a PET scan, and if it a well localized and its very very small and there is no evidence of spread in other organs like the chest mediastinal modes are there, or certain other spreads like bones it has spread, he has a back pain, whether it is liver, we need to do a PET CT and if it is early stage, and it can be receptible, and curable disease is there then we give options for doing a biopsy. If it is close to the chest wall, we ask the interventional radiologist or we ourselves can sometimes do a CT guided biopsy or FNAC to confirm the diagnosis and if it is close to the airway, we need a bronchoscopy and sometimes we will be able to get the diagnosis by a routine bronchoscopy. We need a additional bronchoscopic tool like Eiber’;s and other things might be required. Sometimes if we have a difficulty in diagnosis. Once the confirmation of diagnosis is done , then it is the staging. Then we stage it and if it is receptible, we send it to a thoracic surgeon and then take out and then the options of radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgeries are there. Surgeries are usually used for very very early cancer where it is not involved anything. The second option is will be chemotherapy. Chemotherapy, provided their performance state will be very good, means they look at a score, they are out of the guide moving around. More than 50% they are out of the bed, then we look at them and into those things. Then they are candidates for chemotherapy and is not recommended for this thing,that is the other options for radiotherapy,. We send it for radiotherapy, they take it in sessions. So they look at this things. Sometimes if the disease is very advanced means we don’t do anything. We give a proper palliative and end of life care issues, those things will be discussed. So it all depends on the age, the characteristics and how the extent of the disease and based on that, we take a call on that. Sometimes the scar can be very very very benign. Sometimes it can be a very serious problem.

Low Dose CT Scans to Look for Lung Cancer
It's estimated a quarter million Americans will be diagnosed with lung cancer this year. It's the leading cause of cancer deaths for both men and women. More than half of patients find out they have lung cancer when it's almost too late. Lung cancer continues to frustrate doctors and decimate patients. It's one of the most commonly diagnosed and most lethal of cancers. "Unfortunately most of the patients present in late stages of disease. And the reason is that many times it doesn't have very specific symptoms," says Dr. Frank Rodriguez, an oncologist with Lee Memorial Health System medical staff. Doctors have long searched for a reliable screening test, in particular for high risk groups including smokers over the age of 55, those with a history of second hand smoke exposure, and anyone with occupational exposure to inhaled chemicals. Many doctors used chest x-rays to look for early tumors. "The problem with chest x-rays is that they're not very specific or sensitive, meaning that they often can't delineate or separate good things from bad things," says Dr. Rodriguez. Instead of giving up, researchers looked deeper into more advanced x-ray technology to find something more reliable that might save lives. "There's a better alternative now. There's something called a Low Dose Computerized Tomography, or low dose CAT scan, which basically looks at the lungs and the chest in a way that gives much more information than on a regular x-ray," says Dr. Rodriguez. A low dose, spiral CT scan generates a 3D image in a matter of seconds while keeping radiation exposure to a minimum. It is more successful at finding lesions. Studies find it's better than standard x-rays. "They could actually compare to plain x-rays decreased risk of mortality of lung cancer by 20 percent, which is a significant number," says Dr. Rodriguez. Sixty percent of lung cancers are currently picked up in late stages. Something with the potential to find cancer early could be the game changer doctors are looking for.

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/.

Little cell lung growths are normally in the bronchi, yet can spread rapidly to whatever remains of the body. Section 3 of 8: Tumors. Tumors.
