Around 10-35% of non-small cell lung carcinomas have drug-sensitizing mutations in the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene. In these cases, tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy is recommended. Find the latest research on EGFR and non-small cell lung carcinoma here.
Bronchogenic Carcinoma is a malignant lung cancer arising in the epithelium of the bronchus or bronchiole. Discover the latest research on Bronchogenic Carcinoma here.
Large Cell Carcinoma of Lung is a non-small cell lung cancer that is characterized histologically by large malignant cells. Symptoms include fatigue and shortness of breath. Discover the latest research on Large Cell Carcinoma of Lung here.
Lung adenocarcinoma is a type of non-small cell lung cancer and is the most frequent histological type of lung cancer, often triggered by aberrations in a driver oncogene. Here is the latest research.
Lung squamous cell carcinomas represent 30% of all lung cancers. This feed focuses on genetic and environmental factors that affect this cancer, as well as current therapeutic strategies. Here is the latest research.
Meningeal carcinomatosis is a type of cancer that is spread into the leptomeninges within the brain, which are the inner two meningeal layers surrounding the brain. The most common types of cancer that spread to the leptomeninges via the CSF are breast cancer, melanoma and lung cancer. Here is the latest research on meningeal carcinomatosis.
Multiple pulmonary nodules occur when there are two or more lesions that are 2-3 mm diameter. The most common source of the nodules is from cancer that has metastasized to the lungs. Other causes may be from benign tumors, autoimmune disorders, infection scars, enlarged lymph nodes and others. Here is the latest research on multiple pulmonary nodules.
When fluid accumulates within the pleural space, the area between the lungs and chest wall can contain malignant cells or tumor tissues, resulting from a malignant pleural effusion. The malignant cells often arise from metastasized cancer, most commonly breast cancer and lung cancer, Here is the latest research on malignant pleural effusions.
Small cell lung carcinoma is a specific type of cancer that originates the lungs and is highly malignant. The type of cancer is determined by the distinctive cell type when viewed under a microscope. Here is the latest research on small cell lung carcinoma.
