In The Know: Lung Cancer


November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month. Lung Cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in both women and men. By far, the leading cause of lung cancer is smoking. The risk of lung cancer from smoking increases with the amount of cigarettes or other tobacco products smoked. Even after one stops smoking the risk is still there, although it does gradually decrease over time. Breathing second-hand smoke also increases the risk. Other potential causes include exposure to carcinogenic substances such as asbestos fibers, radon gas, and high levels of pollution. There is a small group of people that appear to have a genetic propensity for developing lung cancer.

The most common types of lung cancer are divided into two types: small cell (10-15%) and non-small cell (80-85%). Of the non-small cell cancers, adenocarcinoma accounts for roughly 40% and squamous cell for 30%. Other cancers can develop within or adjacent to the lung but within non-lung tissues. These include lymphoma and neuroendocrine cancers, as well as mesotheliomas, which can occur in the pleura, the lining around the lungs. Most early lung cancers produce no symptoms. Common indicators are often those of other respiratory conditions, such as infection, or heart disease, but may seem unrelated to the lungs if the cancer has already spread. These symptoms can include a new cough that persists, shortness of breath, chest pain, coughing up blood, unexplained weight loss, headache, and bone pain.

Lung cancers can lead to death, but early identification and treatment can result in cure in many cases. The gold standard for lung cancer screening (LCS) is a low dose computed tomography (CT), which gives a detailed 3-D view of the chest and lungs. The U.S. Preventive Task Force recommends annual LCS for those aged 50-80 who have smoked at least 20 pack years (1 pack per day for 20 years or an equivalent such as 2 packs per day for 10 years) and are either current smokers or have quit within the past 15 years. Medicare covers annual LCS for those aged 50-77 meeting the same qualifications. Early lung cancers are usually seen as nodules, white “spots”, in the lung field. If they are small or new, a repeat LCS may be scheduled in a few months to verify that they are not enlarging and becoming suspicious. A majority of people will have a pulmonary nodule at some point in their lives. These can result from infection or inflammation in addition to cancer. Sometimes they clear up on their own without intervention and sometimes they just remain the same. Worrisome nodules are those that are changing or enlarging.

Once a suspicious nodule is identified, an attempt is often made to further evaluate whether it is really cancerous or not. Sometimes this involves more specialized imaging technique such as a PET scan, or a biopsy in which a sample of the nodule, or sometimes the whole nodule itself, is removed for study by a pathologist. Different types of lung cancer are treated differently and treatment also takes into consideration whether or not the cancer has spread. Treatment may include excision alone or in combination with either chemo or radiation, or both. Some early lung cancers can be treated with just radiation.

If you are or have been a smoker, or have other exposures that increase your risk for lung cancer, talk to your primary care provider to see if you qualify for a lung cancer screening. Early screening and detection can save your life.
