Today, write about any topic you feel like but you must reuse your opening line( at least) two more times in the course of your post.

My topic for today is, “Lung Cancer”.

Like all cancers, cancer of the lung results from an abnormality of the cell. Normally the body maintains a system of checks and balances on cell growth so that cells divide to produce new cells only when new cells are needed. when there is disruption int this checks and balances on cell growth, it results in an uncontrolled division which eventually forms a mass known as tumor.

Like all cancers, cancer of the lung results from an abnormality of the cell.

Tumors can be benign or malignant. When we use the term cancer it means the tumor is malignant. Malignant tumors invades other tissues of the body which results of these tumors to enter into the blood stream or lymphatic system, then to other parts of the body This process is known as metastasis, lung cancer spreads early after it forms.

It is a life threatening cancer and one of the forms of cancer that is difficult to treat. Lung cancer can arise in any part of the lung, but 90% to 95% of cancers are believed to arise from the epithelial cells, the cells lining the larger and smaller airways.

Like all cancers, cancer of the lung results from an abnormality of the cell.

Prior to the 1930s lung cancer was not common.It increased dramatically over the following decades when tobacco smoking increased.

  1. Yes, it is a dreadful one, Ranu – and what, to me, was most scary/horrible, was the way the tobacco companies denied the link between smoking and lung cancer for decades in the name of greed/monetary gain. Nasty. xxx

  2. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this serious post about lung cancer. We can do a lot to care, in a reasonable way, for the body.

    All good wishes,

    robert
