Lung cancer is currently the world's highest incidence of malignant tumors, 80% patients are diagnosed at advanced stage and lost the chance
Lung cancer is currently the world's highest incidence of malignant tumors, 80% patients are diagnosed at advanced stage and lost the chance of radical resection, therefore, chemotherapy is the foundation and core of this kind of treatment, other treatment basically acts as a supporting role, despite the appearance of targeted therapy, some patients the first choice of targeted therapy for oral drugs, but still can not replace the basic status of chemotherapy. However, in reality, many patients and their families are very fear and resist to chemotherapy and chemotherapy on discoloration". The reason is because of the chemotherapy treatment is still a lack of knowledge and lack of understanding, so listen to rumors or misunderstanding.
The previous chemotherapy scares people, let people listen in awe, because of its toxic effect caused by, especially severe nausea and vomiting, and the corresponding check selection and treatment of nausea drugs is limited, can't reduce these adverse effects in a timely manner; in addition to that problem after chemotherapy hair falling. In fact, the previous chemotherapy of lung cancer with multiple chemotherapeutic drug doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, cytarabine and so on of the one or two generation, the side effects of nausea and vomiting and hair loss is obvious, but now the chemotherapy of lung cancer are used gemcitabine, Nuo Weiben, paclitaxel, docetaxel and irinotecan three generation chemotherapy the combination of the two combined chemotherapy of platinum and its side effects than in the past has been reduced significantly, there are few III to IV degrees are only occasional vomiting, hair loss. But now, some central high selective antiemetic drugs such as ondansetron, tropisetron, basically can be done without chemotherapy vomiting; and hair loss is usually reversible, but don't be too concerned about, if the hair loss obviously, can also spend some time with a wig. As for the other side effects, the doctor will according to the specific circumstances to take corresponding measures to alleviate, therefore, there is no need to worry about. In fact, some of the chemotherapy regimens are basically toxic and side effects are not obvious, well tolerated, such as Pei Pei program, non-small cell lung cancer patients worthy of clinical priority to promote. On the whole, as long as the patient behavior score in less than 2 minutes, no chemotherapy contraindications, patients with advanced lung cancer, chemotherapy is a routine therapy, and treatment of any disease, every three drug, no need to worry too much fear, fear is not anecdotal as terrible!
