The impact of lung cancer is high. It comes in 4th position by its frequency. It is the leading cause of humans’ death.

What are the different types of lung cancer?

There are two different types of cancer that can be distinguished through pathological examination:

Non-small cell cancer: these are adenocarcinomas, squamous cell histology and large cell carcinomas (sarcomas and carcinomas sarcomatoides).

Small cell cancer: those are small cell carcinomas and mixed  small cell carcinoma.

Pleural mesothelioma: this type is formed in the pleuron that covers the lungs.

Other types: this is a metastasis from another cancer that appears in another organ.

Through interrogation:  it is necessary to state the symptoms, the profession (there are occupational risks such as asbestos exposure), smoking, alcoholism and family history of lung cancer.

Clinical examination: involves general examination and examination of the respiratory system through inspection, palpation, auscultation,  and percussion.
Supplementary examinations: we start with chest X-ray, chest CT and fiberoptic bronchoscope. The latter allows us to take samples for a pathological examination to confirm the cancer.
Then it is necessary to complete the  extension assessment in the search for metastases.
