Spin Cell Carcinoma In Lungs
Fairly good: This type of tumor is sensitive to chemotherapy. The question is whether this is primary or metastatic from a non pulmonary origin. In either case if this is the only lesion, a thorascopic resection of the nodule can give total control. This can then be followed by adjuvant chemo. ...Read more
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
Resection: If it is an early stage SCC you need to see a cardio thoracic surgeon and plan for a resection. Of course you have to complete a PET CT for staging and Pulmonary Function tests to assess if you are a surgical candidate. ...Read more
Hi! i'm vem from ph. My mom was diagnosed with double primary ca. Adenocarcinoma of the lungs, squamous cells carcinoma of skin. Wil u help me?
What do you need?: The adenocarcinoma of the lung is extremely serious. The squamous carcinoma of the skin will almost certainly be cured by simple excision. Educate yourself about adenocarcinoma of the lung generally, and the markers and stage of her tumor and what is likely to be done for it. I'm glad you are there for her at this time. ...Read more
One type of cancer: There are a number of variants of lung cancer and these are named for their microscopic appearance, the main ones being: squamous cell, adenocarcinoma, small cell carcinoma and large cell carcinoma. In squamous cell cancer, the tumor cells resemble skin cells. This type of tumor is commonly seen in smokers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Partially: There are several ways of treating scc of the lung. Specifically, there are molecular markers, such as egfr or alk-1 that can be tested to see if you are able to be managed with targeted drug therapy. Radiation is employed more frequently for scc than chemotherapy. All non-small cell cancers of the lung are treated differently than small cell carcinoma, which is much more chemo-sensitive. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Husband has stage 4 renal cell carcinoma, spread to right lung, vera cava vein, left kidney removed when can we expect him to get sick?
Unfortunate: Sorry , instead of thinking how many months from now is going to get sick, think how many good months or years if newer chemo drugs may give long remission. Positive thinking is needed , good luck. ...Read more
I had nephrectomy in feb. After that i was diagnosed as metastatic renal cell carcinoma (lung cancer). But i don't have any symptoms as doc said.Why?
Congratulations: Renal cell carcinoma is notoriously capricious and unpredictable. It's common for a lung metastasis to vanish or stay stable for many years, especially after removal fo the primary tumor. I'm going to assume the diagnosis is accurate. Cherish being alive and be thankful for whatever time you have left -- fill it with love and good things. ...Read more
What to expect in my husbands diagnoses, he has stage 4 renal cell carcinoma. 2.5 CM tumor on right lung, one in vera cava vein, left kidney out..
Serious situation: From your description, your husband has advanced kidney cancer including at least a solitary lung metastasis. Not sure if you mean he had renal vein involvement on the kidney specimen or whether there is tumor left behind after removal. Next step would be chemotherapy or (less likely) immunotherapy. Not likely a role for radiotherapy. If lung lesion is only remaining site, may be role to remove. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Renal Cell Carcinoma - had radical nephrectomy left kidney, cancer has spread to the lungs - surgery not an option. Life expectancy w/o treatment?
My mother has been diagnosed with a squamous cell rectal carcinoma with metastatic liver and lung tumors how long with treatment should we elect to?
Probably anal cancer: Likely anal and not rectal given the pathology. If squamous cell, needs specific chemotherapy. However, not curable but treatable. Treatment should be continued based on response, however, the drugs used for this cancer have a cumulative toxicity. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sir. I'm a student, 21 year old. I am afraid that I have basal cell carcinoma? On my chest or sternal area, small about 3mm, rised edges.
How reliable are regular head MRI and chest CT scans to early detect potential recurrence of acinic cell carcinoma of parotid?
Limited: Most with this diagnosis have less than 2 years of survival, unless found when small and peripheral so it can be removed! ...Read more
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
