      Diagnosed with lung cancer? Fight it now

      Studies show that lung cancer is now one the biggest killer amongst cancers. However, new treatments today are bringing in hope to those diagnosed with this disease.

      Screening can save you

      Like all other cancers, catching it early can help save lives. Those aged 55 to 80 with a history of smoking must undertake lung cancer screening done with spiral CT. This can help treat it early. In many cases, lung cancer is usually identified only after it has spread and by then things are complicated, regular screenings are important to prevent this.

      Go for a second opinion

      The field of medical treatment is moving at a rapid pace. A second opinion increases your chances of gaining access or hearing about newer therapies that could help.

      Stay patient

      The tendency is to panic when the diagnosis is lung cancer, while early treatment is important, give your doctor a little space to make an accurate diagnosis. Your doctor needs to see how much the spread is. It takes about two weeks to analyze a tumor's genetic make-up and then derive the best targeted therapy.

      Best foods to fight lung cancer

      Whole grain foods put up a tough fight against the disease, good sources of these are whole grains, oatmeal, wholegrain pastas, whole-wheat breads and brown rice. Include plenty of fruits and vegetables in your diet as they are rich in antioxidants that fight cancer.

      Stay away from supplements

      When it comes to cancer, sometimes supplements can do more harm than good. These can sometimes interfere with medications that your doctor prescribes.

      Stop smoking and encourage others to quit

      Smoking is the key cause for lung cancers and responsible for 85% to 90% of them. If you have lung cancer besides quitting yourself, make sure others around you don’t smoke. Passive smoking is harmful too. 10% to 15% of non-smokers do get cancer too. In non-smokers, lung cancer may be the result of other carcinogens such as diesel fumes, asbestos or radon. Genetic factors also may be the cause.
