  • Case Study: Lung Cancer
    • Understanding and Diagnosis
      • Grew in 1900s until it was linked to smoking.
      • CT scans to make it easier to diagnose and not diagnose it as something else.
      • If the CT scans showed a mass, a sample of cells are collected and tested.
    • Treatment
      • Transplants - now there is a possibility of moving a cancerous lung.
      • Radiotherapy - concentrated waves of radiation at the tumour to shrink it.
      • Chemotherapy - injected with different drugs to shrink the tumour before surgery, or prevent it reoccurring or provide relief from the symptoms.
