Lung Cancer Pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors

Lung Cancer Pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors

Neuroendocrine tumours are localized in the chest area, representing a slowly growing formation in the mediastinal organs, characterized by a favourable prognosis, provided that treatment is adequately undertaken. Lung cancer is a group of malignant tumours that arise from the cells that line the bronchi or lungs. The right lung is usually affected more often than the left, and the upper lobes more often than the lower. It often takes many years for this cancer to develop. Lung oncology is often not limited to one organ; the tumour can metastasize to other parts of the body.

In most cases, the disease is associated with tobacco smoking. Other predisposing factors are ionizing radiation, occupational hazards - work in the mining, chemical industry, prolonged contact with asbestos, heavy metals, environmental factors. Genetic predisposition and some chronic lung diseases also play a role. The choice of treatment for lung cancer depends on the prevalence of the disease (stage), the type of tumour and the patient's condition.

Symptoms

The development of the tumour is accompanied by the following clinical picture: 

  • Bronchospasm.
  • Diarrhoea.
  • Skin rash.
  • Hot flashes.
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Cramping chest pains.
  • Heart failure.
  • Tachycardia.
  • Puffiness.
  • Cough.
  • Hemoptysis.
  • Disorder of consciousness.

More specific symptoms depend on the focus of the lesion, the stage of the disease, the degree of spread of the pathology.

Diagnostics

The examination plays an important role in successful treatment and involves the use of modern informative techniques. Comprehensive diagnostics with high-quality laboratory and instrumental research is carried out in the Israeli Tel Aviv Medical Clinic, equipped with advanced equipment. 

  • Physical examination, collection of anamnesis and complaints.
  • Blood and urine tests with subsequent examination for markers.
  • CT scan, with the use of a contrast agent, if necessary, it allows visualization of even small-sized education.
  • Ultrasound for the examination of all organs and detection of metastases.
  • MRI to clarify the diagnosis.
  • PET.
  • Endoscopy.
  • Scintigraphy.

Then, based on the data obtained, the doctor selects an individual therapy regimen, taking into account the general condition of the patient and the characteristics of the development of the disease. It is worth noting that in our clinic tariffs are set at the state level. Thus, you get quality services for which you pay less. Our staff will help you contact charities to raise funds for treatment.
