Radiotherapy for Lung Cancer

MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Radiotherapy for Lung Cancer

Radiotherapy is a kind of treatment that kills the cancer cells by using high energy beams. Specialists use radiotherapy to treat a wide range of lung cancer. For early stage lung cancer, the radiotherapy may get rid of the cancer totally. For the small cell lung cancer you may have radiotherapy only. Then again you may have it with another treatment, for example, chemotherapy or surgery.

For small cell lung cancer, radiotherapy is used with or after chemotherapy. Chemotherapy makes the tumor in the lung shrink. You may have radiotherapy to your cerebrum, which tackles any cancer cells that may have spread to the brain. This is called prophylactic cranial illumination (PCI). In case of advanced lung cancer, the treatment contracts the tumor and controls it for a while. It additionally decreases symptoms like shortness of breath.

The types of radiotherapy used for the lungs include:

Outer radiotherapy: This kind of radiotherapy comes from a machine and is administered to the body through an external source. It depends on the kind of cancer and the progression of the same. You may have three radiotherapy sittings every day for around 12 days. This sort of radiotherapy is known as CHART ceaseless hyperfractionated quickened radiotherapy. A few people with small cell lung cancer may have treatment twice a day. If you are getting radiotherapy to control the side effects of lung cancer, you may have a single treatment or day by day medications for up to 3 weeks.

Inner radiotherapy: This is called brachytherapy or endobronchial treatment. This will be administered during a bronchoscopy. The radiation is given through a thin tube that the specialist puts inside your aviation route for a few of minutes. Specialists use this sort of treatment to shrink a tumor that is blocking or pushing your breathing track and making breathing troublesome for you.

These are some of the procedures that take place while you are having lung cancer radiotherapy:

  1. Radiotherapy machines are enormous. The machines are fixed in one position or are sometimes ready to go around your body to give treatment from various angles.
  2. Prior to your first treatment, your radiographers will clarify what you will hear and see. The treatment room normally have docks for you to connect to music players. So you can listen to your own choice of music.
  3. You cannot feel radiotherapy when you really have the treatment. It takes anything from one second to a few minutes. It is essential to lie similarly situated every time, so the radiographers may take a short time to get you prepared.
  4. Once you are in the right position, the staff will allow you to sit in the space for a couple of minutes. They watch you constantly on a closed circuit TV screen. They may request that you hold your breath or take shallow breaths during the treatment.

Good morning doctor, actually I have very pain in upper part my right side breast, what the reason.

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist, Kolkata
Breast pain is a common problem if it occurs before periods, because it happens due to hormonal changes, however if the pain stays all through the month or if you can feel some lump/swelling then you may need to do ultrasound examination of breasts. Wearing a well fitting bra may help.

My mom has non small cell cancer of advance stage. Her lungs was filled with fluid. Gefitinib 250 is started from two days. Her age is 67 and have severe disk problem. Is there any hope.

Geftinib (Osimertinib is newer drug preferred) is usually started in Non Small cell cancer (Adeno carcinoma) if Patient is EGFR +ve, it usually responds well to the drug initially. The usual side effects are rash on the palms and soles and loose motions in some patients. The drug is continued till the disease is responding, stable or progressing only minimally (which may be a few months to a few years) If the disease shows rapid progression, 2nd line chemotherapy may be considered depending upon the General condition and age of the patient. If lungs are filled with fluid, she may need insertion of intercostal drainage tube with pleurodesis if necessary. Also is the back pain due to slip disk or bone metastasis. If bone metastasis then she may benefit from Bisphosphonates and / or palliative RT depending on the findings. Also immunotherapy drugs like nivolumab are showing promising results, but cost of almost 2lacs per month is a limiting factor. If you want to share the detailed case history and reports, feel free to contact me directly.

I'm aged 53 I want to know the reason for enlargement of prostate. My prostate 's size is detected 35.9 cc. What may ...
It is natural for the prostate to enlarge with age as a result of male hormones like testosterone and dht acting on it. Treatment for enlarged prostate is needed only when you have symptoms. Urologist is the appropriate doctor to consult. Once some basic investigations are done an alpha blocker is likely to be advised.

I am cancer patient. What precautions I should take in diet and one more question doctor I have gone through first chemotherapy but no improvement is there.

MBBS, DNB ( Radiation Oncology)
Oncologist, Mumbai
Hi. You should eat healthy balanced food. Eat whole foods, whole wheat. Cook the vegetables well. Avoid raw vegetable as you are on chemotherapy as well. Keep your immunity well by eating food rich in antioxidants. Eat fruits and berries. You have to be patient. Just one chemotherapy will not give you magical results. All the best.

My prostate is enlarged and have 8.6 mm stone in ureter line. Which is the effective remedy for this?(age=62 yrs)
Prostate enlargement is common in this age so don't worry about that. Take some anti inflammatory drugs to subside the swelling. For stone you can take diuretics so that it will be flushed out easily Considering your condition you can take cap. Stonvil 2 cap three times a day tab. Punarnavadi guggul 2 tab thrice a day tab. Triphala guggul 2 tab thrice a day tab. Gokshuradi guggul 2 tab thrice a day for at least 15 days then gradually decrease the dose.
