How to treat and diagnose lung cancer at the present stage?

Oncological diseases are recognized as one of the most common pathologies at present in all countries, and most of all in developed countries. But the species and forms of malignant tumors revealed a huge number, and the factors of their occurrence are not fully elucidated. But regarding lung and respiratory tract tumors, scientists have found out that the main reason for the development of this pathology is tobacco smoking - in most cases of lung cancer diagnosis, patients turn out to be heavy smokers.

Treatment of lung cancer in Israel at the first stage involves the implementation of a variety of procedures, which show the level of lung damage, the presence of metastatic processes, and, in general, the patient's well-being. All these nuances are clarified with the help of X-ray diagnostics, computed tomography, and also more informative is the endoscopic examination of the respiratory tract( bronchoscopy) and directly of the lungs and pulmonary fluid( thoracoscopy). During such instrumental studies, a sample of pulmonary fluid is taken for laboratory diagnostics, and in additiontissue of the neoplasm( biopsy).Lung cancer is also diagnosed with additional checks, such as MRI and a combined PET-CT technique, but usually such procedures are already performed during treatment to evaluate the effectiveness of the recommended methods.

It should be noted that in the treatment of lung cancer for any patient, the therapy program is tailored individually, and usually combines methods such as irradiation, surgery and the intake of chemicals. But how these methods of therapy will be combined in one program depends on the personal characteristics of the patient's organism.

It should be noted that in the treatment of lung cancer for any patient, the treatment program is tailored individually, and usually combines methods such as irradiation, surgery and intake of chemicals. But how exactly these methods of therapy will be combined in one program depends on the personal characteristics of the patient's body. It should be noted that surgical intervention is performed as the main treatment exclusively at the initial stages of tumor development, and when this disease is detected already at the advanced stage( third to fourth), several courses of chemotherapeutic treatment in combination with irradiation and immunotherapy are performed. Immunotherapy and biological treatment are recognized as innovative methods in the therapy of pulmonary tumors, and are currently used quite widely, since they show excellent results.

Lung cancer therapy at the present stage has significantly increased the chances of successful and effective treatment of the disease. New methods of therapy and operation of oncological pathologies allow to achieve both final elimination of the disease and long-term remission. In addition, in recent years, scientists from all countries are actively engaged in the development of new treatment programs and medicines, so it is worthwhile to take an interest in modern techniques for the treatment and diagnosis of cancer, such as lung cancer.
