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.

Dear sirs, I have to ask for an important opinion. The details are as follows: 1. It was 60 yrs back (1957) when my friend was only 18 yrs (weight 54kgand height 175cm) and had heavy bleeding from mouth and was diagnosed a case of broncactasis. He had some heavy strain on previous day i. E. Running for about 4-5 km on hot day. The bleeding was for only 1 or 2 days. It was alright after some antibiotics injections and rest for about month. 2. There was no problem for 5 yrs. Again in 1963, there was bleeding from mouth but not so heavy. It continued for few days i. E. Blood in sputum. After few days of hospitalization and antibiotics, and rest it was alright. 3. There was no trouble at all for next 50 yrs (from 1963 to 2010). 4. He is now normal weight for his height. 5. Got tested for t. B. Several time over last 50-60 yrs but no t. B. 6. For last 4-5 (till 2013) yrs, he started getting blood in sputum, once in a while which lasts for 4-5 days and then o. K. For months. He takes antibiotics for few days but homeopathic drugs regularly. 7. Sputum tests on regular intervals now indicate no infections (since last one yr) though earlier (during 2010-13) he was getting psedonomas infection in sputum test, which was cured by antibiotics. 8. Problem: now the problem has escalated. Though no infection has been found in sputum, the frequency of blood in sputum has increased. It is now almost every month for 4-5 days, which gets perfectly cured and the sputum is clear, though he gets regular? phelgem? from lungs which is mostly white in colour. Next month again same problem. 9. X-ray chest several time. Shows clear chest. 10. He is not on any regular allopathic medicine but on homeopathic medicines on regular basis, for last 5-6 yrs. Even homeopathic medicine also not working very effectively now. Nasal spray? fluticone-ft, bd helps a little. 11. Question: what are the remedies. Is it curable by medicines or is it fait accompli. How life threatening is this situation. Thankyou

Most of cough suppressent and antibiotics in cough and cold is not desirable due to untoward side effects remember largest number if cases of cough and cold with without fever are viral and thus subside in less than a week at most you can try home made remedy like karha honey garlic. However if cough and fever is persistent beyond 7 days please consult your doctor. 3 phials of tixylix and antibiotics is not at all justified.

Maintain temp chart without any medicine 4 times in a day at least for 4 days to ascertain nature of fever. If temp remains under 99.5 degree F and child is active, there is no need of worry otherwise consult pediatrician.

I have coughing at night time. Easinophilia has been ruled out. I am on losartan as a cardio protective. Ace inhibitors are well known to lead to coughing. Can losartan lead to the coughing I am having? should I stop taking losartan? what is the alternative for me if I stop losartan?

MBBS, DNB (Pediatrics)
Pediatrician, Kolkata
Yes. Losartan can cause dey cough similar to ace inhibitors. This cough is more likely to occur in patients who had cough with ace inhibitor. For any advice to change medicine, full record needs review.
