Hello, I have seen the pet-ct report of your father. It is not liver cancer but mets in the liver and lungs. The treatment of liver cancer and cancer that has mets in the liver is completely different. Tata memorial hospital, mumbai remains the apex institute for the treatment of cancer in india. Also, you may consult at sgpgi, lucknow since it is good and close to your home too.

Lung Cancer: Symptoms & Causes

MD PULMONARY, DTCD
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
Lung Cancer: Symptoms & Causes

Lungs are the most important organ of our body that has the responsibility of taking in the oxygen and releasing out carbon dioxide. When cancer develops in it, the entire body gets imbalanced. Lung cancer leads to more death than any other type of cancer, which is why identifying the symptoms and knowing the causes are instrumental in obtaining a timely diagnosis as well as in prevention of this disease.

Symptoms of Lung Cancer

In the early stages:

  1. Persistent coughing

  2. Chest pain

  3. Bleeding

  4. Fatigue

  5. Loss of appetite

  6. Sudden weight loss

  7. Headaches

  8. Coughing up blood

In the later stages:

  1. Bone pain

  2. Joint pain

  3. Facial paralysis

  4. Neck swelling

  5. Blood clotting

  6. Weakness

  7. Sever chest pain

Causes of Lung Cancer:

  • Smoking: People who smoke are more prone to lung cancer. With the increase in the number of cigarettes you smoke, your chances of getting lung cancer increase too. People who don't smoke but are surrounded by the smokers also have high chances of being affected by this form of cancer.
  • Exposure to Asbestos: Asbestos is a group of mineral, which is present naturally in the environment. Lung cancer can occur due to the inhalation and ingestion of asbestos fibers.
  • Exposure to Ranon Gas: Ranon is a radioactive gas, which is formed naturally on decaying of radioactive elements. It is found in low levels in the air that we breathe and the water that we drink. Consumption of air and water having this gas leads to lung cancer.
  • High Levels of Air Pollution: Presence of high levels of dust particles and pollutants in the air that we breathe can cause lung cancer. 1-2% of lung cancer is caused because of it.
  • High Levels of Arsenic in Drinking Water: Consuming water with arsenic content is harmful as it directly affects the lungs and when the arsenic content is too high, it may lead to lung cancer.
  • Exposure to Chemicals: Exposure to certain chemicals like uranium, coal products, gasoline, diesel exhaust and mustard gas can also cause lung cancer.

Family History of Lung Cancer: Chances of getting lung cancer increase if your parents, child or siblings are already prone to lung cancer.

Let your CT imaging to assess by surgical oncologist to check resectability. if resectable surgery should be done earliest possible. there also risk of becoming inoperable with further chemotherapy if it is not responding to chemotherapy
