Lung Disorders

When you breathe, your lungs take in oxygen from the air and deliver it to the bloodstream. The cells in your body need oxygen to work and grow. During a normal day, you breathe nearly 25,000 times. People with lung disease have difficulty breathing. Millions of people in the world have lung disease. If all types of lung disease are lumped together, it is the number three killer in the World. The term lung disease refers to many disorders affecting the lungs, such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, infections like influenza, pneumonia and tuberculosis, lung cancer, and many other breathing problems.

Lung Cancer:

Lung cancer is the second-most commonly diagnosed cancer in both men and women. However it is still the most common cause of cancer death.Lung cancer is a malignant tumor in the lungs. This means that the abnormal cells of the tumor grow without order or control. They destroy the healthy lung tissue around them.Lung cancer can spread to other parts of the body.There are two major types of lung cancer: small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. Non-small cell lung cancer is the more common. It makes up about 80 percent of lung cancer cases. This type of cancer usually grows and spreads to other parts of the body more slowly than small cell lung cancer does.One reason lung cancer is such a killer is that it is hard to detect in its early stages.Smoking ,Radon exposure ,Industrial exposures,Genetic factors are some of the causes of Lung cancer.A small portion of lung cancers occur in people with no apparent exposure risk for the disease. Lung cancer in people who have never smoked is a major public health problem and continued research is needed. Women, compared to men, appear to have higher rates of lung cancer that is not linked to smoking.
