Nonsmall Cell Lung Cancer, Occult: Disease Bioinformatics
Lung cancer begins in the lungs and has become the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States for both men and women--claiming more lives than colon, ovarian, prostate, and breast cancer combined. There are two types of lung cancer--small and non-smal--based on the appearance of the cancer cells on the microscope. Non-small cell lung cancer accounts for approximately 85% of lung cancers and include squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, and large cell carcinoma. The occult stage of of small cell lung cancer occurs when cancer cells are found in the mucus from the lungs but tumors are not visible. Individuals in this stage typically do not demonstrate symptoms, yet a cough may be present. Risk for being diagnosed with lung cancer includes smoking, second hand smoke, exposure to radon gas, asbestos, and other chemicals, excessive alcohol use, and a family history. Treatments depend on the stage as well as type of lung cancer but include: surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, targeted drug therapy, and clinical trials.
