BRONCHOGENIC CANCER

Bronchogenic Cancer or Lung Cancer is the most common cancer in men, and the 3rd most common in women.[i]

It is generally classified into two types: small cell lung cancer (SCLC), and the non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

The small cell variety, sometimes called oat cell lung cancer, is very aggressive with poor prognosis. It is not uncommon to find 10% of patients with brain metastases[ii] upon diagnosis. The lesions are usually beyond surgical resection because of early spread. They are initially responsive to chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The tumor may present as a solitary pulmonary nodule, in which case it is classified as “limited disease”.
