  15. 15. Lung Cancer Matthew Knoch Senior Talk May 20 th and 22 nd , 2009 University Hospitals Case Medical Center and VA, Cleveland OH
  16. 16. Objectives <ul><li>Identify background knowledge of lung cancer rates and incidence, including etiology and causal factors </li></ul><ul><li>Learn the different types of lung malignancies and understand their diagnosis, staging and prognosis </li></ul><ul><li>Understand the basic treatment options </li></ul>
  17. 17. Background Information <ul><li>Most common type of cancer in industrialized nations – leading cause of mortality from cancer </li></ul><ul><li>Accounts for 13% of all new cancer diagnoses and 30% of cancer deaths in men and 7% of deaths among both sexes however incidence in women is increasing greatly </li></ul><ul><li>Remains the most frequent fatal malignancy, ~91K male and ~71K female deaths/year </li></ul>
  18. 18. Background Information (Cont) <ul><li>Annual deaths have increased from 18,000 in 1950 to 158,000 in 1997 in US and roughly 900,000 deaths worldwide with >50% of those in developed countries </li></ul><ul><li>Death rate has also increased 3-fold from 19.9 to 74 per 100,000 in men and 7-fold 4.5 to 31 per 100,000 in women during same time period </li></ul><ul><li>Spectrum of disease – more deaths than the next 3 most common cancers combined (colon/rectum, breast and prostate) – 114,690 cases/90,810 deaths in men and 182,460 cases/71,030 deaths in women in 2008 </li></ul>
  19. 19. Background Information (Cont) <ul><li>Accounts for 13% of all malignancies in both sexes </li></ul><ul><li>Most often occurs between ages 40-70, peaks in the 50-60 age range </li></ul>
  20. 20. So what causes lung cancer? <ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Probably multifactorial (genetics?) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Not the Only cause (90% of </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li> cases)…but also based upon: </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>1. Amount of daily smoking </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>2. Tendency to inhale </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>3. Duration of smoking </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li> 4. Age of initiation of smoking? </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Increases risk by about 10-20 fold </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>over non-smokers in </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>retrospective studies compared </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>with control subjects, shown by </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li> landmark epidemiologic studies </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li> in the 1950’s in US/Britain </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  21. 21. It doesn’t stop there <ul><li>Cancers of the lip, tongue, oropharynx, throat, bladder and kidney cancer are all implicated in smoking </li></ul><ul><li>So what helps? </li></ul><ul><li>• Smoking cessation 10 years out returns risk level to that of nonsmokers (dose response relationship exists) </li></ul>
  22. 22. Why are cigarettes so bad and how do they cause cancer? <ul><li>Over 1200 chemical substances (50 identifiable carcinogens) found in the smoke of cigarettes including: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Initiators such as PAH </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Promoters such as phenol derivatives </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Radioactive elements: polonium-210, carbon-14, potassium-40 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Others: arsenic, nickel, molds, additives </li></ul></ul>
  23. 23. More on Dose Response <ul><li>The Cancer Prevention Study II (CPSII) followed >1,000,000 smokers for 6 years and found that: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1 ppd = 22x the risk of dying from lung cancer </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2 ppd = 45x the risk of dying from lung cancer </li></ul></ul>
  24. 24. Also helpful, kind of: <ul><li>At least in the US: public health interventions, litigation and education have contributed to a decline in smoking and therefore lung cancer rates, however this is not the case in developing nations across the globe </li></ul><ul><li>Roughly 20-25% of the American population continues to smoke </li></ul>
  25. 25. Cigarette Consumption, per capita in adults
  26. 26. More good news… <ul><li>Experiments have been unsuccessful in causing lung cancer in laboratory animals through prolonged exposure to smoke </li></ul><ul><li>On the other hand, bronchioloalveolar cancers have been demonstrated but these are not seen very often in human smokers </li></ul>
  27. 27. Other Risk Factors <ul><li>Industrial – radiation exposure, asbestos, workers exposed to nickel/chromate/coal/ mustard gas/arsenic/berylium/iron/gold/ haloether and newspaper industry workers (9-15%) </li></ul><ul><li>Air pollution – both indoor and outdoor (1-2%), radon (10%), difficult to determine though </li></ul><ul><li>Second hand smoke: nonsmoking women married to smokers had a 1.2x risk of developing cancer – possible hormonal/metabolism effects, even higher if >2 ppd (roughly 3000 case/year) </li></ul><ul><li>Combined risk factors approach 100% </li></ul>
  28. 28. Molecular Genetics <ul><li>So what does the cumulative effect of all of these risk factors mean? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It is thought that by the time a tumor in the lung has developed that anywhere from 10 to 20 genetic mutations have occurred before a tumor develops </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>These include c-myc, K-ras and p53 </li></ul></ul>
  29. 29. Other factors implicated <ul><li>Scarring – researchers have noted cancer formation in the region of prior lung scarring </li></ul><ul><ul><li>These include areas of old infarct, metallic foreign bodies, wounds and granulomatous infections </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Most of these cancers are histiologically adenocarcinomas </li></ul></ul>
  30. 30. Types Of Lung Cancer <ul><li>Squamous cell – 25-40%, epidermoid derived </li></ul><ul><li>Adenocarcinoma – 25-40%, bronchial, acinar, papillary, solid, broncioalveolar </li></ul><ul><li>Small cell – 20-25%, oat, intermediate cell </li></ul><ul><li>Large cell – 10-15%, undifferentiated, giant or clear cell </li></ul><ul><li>Combined – squamous and adenocarcinoma </li></ul>
  31. 31. So what about gender? <ul><li>Since the 1950’s, a >500% lung cancer mortality has been identified in women </li></ul><ul><li>Partially due to increasing number of women smokers, but it has also been observed that dose for dose women have increased susceptibility to carcinogen exposure than men </li></ul>
  32. 32. Good News <ul><li>The most important risk factors implicated in lung cancer are modifiable, e.g. stop smoking </li></ul>
  33. 33. Mechanism of cancer formation <ul><li>Begins as in situ cytologic atypia that multiplies into tumor formation </li></ul><ul><li>May progress into the lumen, spread to adjacent areas of carina or mediastinum with nodal involvement, pleural invasion </li></ul><ul><li>Intraparenchymal mass formation </li></ul><ul><li>Rapid growth may cause local obstruction, hemorrhage or necrosis depending on rate of growth and location </li></ul>
  34. 34. What lung cancer likes <ul><li>Adrenals - ~50% of cancers </li></ul><ul><li>Liver – 30-50% </li></ul><ul><li>Brain – 20% </li></ul><ul><li>Bone – 20% </li></ul>
  35. 35. Adenocarcinoma <ul><li>Includes bronchial-derived and bronchioloalveolar, 80% contain mucin </li></ul><ul><li>Incidence greatly increased in the past 20 years </li></ul><ul><li>Most common form in women, probably in men too; being seen more in smokers </li></ul><ul><li>Cause for the increase? Perhaps related to addition of filters and deeper inhalation </li></ul>
  36. 36. Squamous Cell Ca <ul><li>More often found in men, usually associated with long smoking history </li></ul><ul><li>Centrally located lesions and spread locally </li></ul><ul><li>Later metasteses </li></ul>
  37. 37. Small Cell Ca <ul><li>Oat cell’s given small histologic appearance </li></ul><ul><li>High neuroendocrine activity: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>PTH-like peptides </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Neuron-specific enolase </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Strongly associated with Tob exposure </li></ul><ul><li>Centrally located </li></ul>
  38. 38. Large Cell Ca <ul><li>Likely represent squamous cell and adenocarcinomas that are undifferentiated </li></ul>
  39. 39. Complications of Lung Ca <ul><li>Obstruction – emphysema vs. atelectasis </li></ul><ul><li>PNA – abscess formation </li></ul><ul><li>SVC syndrome </li></ul><ul><li>Pericarditis </li></ul><ul><li>Pleuritis </li></ul><ul><li>Neuroendocrine abnormalities </li></ul><ul><li>Hypercoagulable states </li></ul>
  40. 40. Diagnosis <ul><li>Start with H&P </li></ul><ul><li>Illicit good history, especially social including exposure risks </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Cough, hemoptysis, weight loss, chest pain, SOB </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Physical exam </li></ul>
  41. 41. Diagnosis <ul><li>CXR – identifies nodules usually >1cm </li></ul><ul><li>CT Chest – more definitive view of lung parenchyma and adjacent lymph nodes </li></ul><ul><li>PET scan – helpful in staging to determine degree of metastases </li></ul><ul><li>MRI/CT brain – useful in looking at CNS involvement </li></ul>
  42. 42. Differential <ul><li>Other than cancer: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>TB </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PE </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>MI </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Other lung pathology: PTX </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Simple PNA’s </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sarcoid </li></ul></ul>

  57. 57. Conclusions <ul><li>Lung cancer is a common malignancy in our society and throughout the world with the overall highest morbidity/mortality in terms of malignancies that unfortunately has not seen a significant increase in survival rates over the past several decades </li></ul><ul><li>Bottom line, the best thing we can do as physicians to prevent this disease is to promote smoking cessation </li></ul>
  58. 58. Conclusions <ul><li>Finally, more research needs to be done for the treatment of lung cancer and perhaps the development and implementation of a screening tool for earlier diagnosis and treatment of the disease </li></ul>
