Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is the redundant and uncontrollable formation of a mass (tumor) in the lung by proliferating cells from structurally normal lung tissue.

The course of the disease ;

  • Prolonged dry cough,
  • Sudden and excessive weight loss,
  • Aphonia
  • Difficulty in swallowing,
  • Unusual swelling in the neck and face,
  • Recurrent attacks of pneumonia, bronchitis and pharyngitis,
  • Bloody sputum production,
  • While the severe pain in the body manifests itself as fatigue and weakness, in some cases it progresses without any symptoms.

The aim of lung cancer treatment is to eliminate or limit the disease if possible, and to increase the quality and life of a healthy life. A multidisciplinary approach is very important for the best treatment of lung cancer.
