Nearly 800 thousand people die of lung cancer every year in China, of which, non-small cell lung cancer accounts for about 80%. It is necessary to make clear the standardized and guiding treatment plan so as to make the most effective treatment. Treatment of lung cancer must be integrated to determine the most appropriate treatment options. In the vast majority of cases, the best treatment is surgery based multidisciplinary comprehensive treatment.
First to determine the type of lung cancer. Lung cancer is divided into non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC) according to pathology, which accounts for about 80% of the total number of lung cancer and 20%. Non small cell lung cancer and squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, large cell carcinoma and other types. Small cell undifferentiated carcinoma is more sensitive to radiotherapy and chemotherapy, but easy to relapse. Overall, lung cancer is the best surgical treatment.
Second, look at the staging of lung cancer. The international standard of lung cancer can be divided into four stages: I, II, III and IV. The characteristics of stage I and II are small, easy to remove, and there is no distant metastasis. It can be treated with surgery combined with radiotherapy and chemotherapy. In the third stage, surgery combined with radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Stage IV lung cancer can not only use surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
Third depends on the patient's physical condition. Mainly to check the patient's vital organs, heart, liver, lung, kidney function is normal, no diabetes, myocardial infarction and other important underlying diseases.
Combined with the above situation, to find the best treatment.
