Lung Canceris the second-most commonly diagnosed cancer in both women and men. It is characterized byuncontrolled growth of cells in tissues of lung. If not treated on time, the growth can spread beyond thelung into nearby tissue and eventually other parts of body. Some common symptoms for lung cancerare coughing, shortness of breath and weight loss.Normally the cells in lung tissue reproduce and develop into healthy lung tissue, but the abnormal cellsreproduce rapidly and never grow into lung tissue. As a result, tumors are formed, which disrupt thelung and make it difficult to function properly. Most of lung cancers are related to smoking, though notall smokers develop lung cancer. In fact, nearly 25 percent of lung cancer occurs in individuals whonever smoke. However, quitting smoking can reduce a person’s risk of lung cancer (and other cancers)significantly. There are many subtypes of lung cancers, such as Epidermoid carcinoma,Adenocarcinoma, Bronchioalveolar carcinoma, and large cell undifferentiated carcinomas.Anil Potti has received many awards in recognition of his exceptional achievements as a medicalprofessional, teacher, mentor and researcher.
