There are several types of lung cancer. Read on for some important information to help you get prepared for fighting lung cancer (or any other type of cancer) and learn about cancer prevention strategies.
Lung cancer types include:
Small Cell Carcinoma
Squamous Cell Carcinoma
Large Cell Carcinoma, and
Mesothelioma is often grouped with lung cancer but is a very different disease and is not classified as a lung cancer.
Something most people, who are diagnosed (or that have had a loved one recently diagnosed), most often do is search for information about types of lung cancer so that they can determine what their best strategy for fighting their cancer is.
While your doctor will provide you with information and pamphlets, many people also do their own research online.
Getting informed about types of the disease and treatment options helps you feel a little less helpless about what happens next and the Internet does have a wealth of cancer fighting resources.
Your type of cancer is important to understand. If, for example, your type of cancer is Non-Small Cell Carcinoma, it may not have yet spread at the time it is diagnosed. This could mean that surgery may result in full removal.
Treatment and Strategies
But just because you may have a diagnosis of a different type of lung cancer, this doesn’t mean that you need to start planning for the worst. Having a positive mindset is vital in terms of fighting cancer and knowledge about treatments and strategies above and beyond the basic treatments offered by your doctor can help with that.
By learning about your category of cancer, you can learn about various treatment options. Staging and doctor’s recommendations will play a part in your prognosis but above and beyond doing what your doctor suggests, you can and should become as educated as possible about additional strategies.
These additional strategies can work in conjunction with surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and drug therapy.
