Comprehensive Lung Cancer Care at Fortis Hospitals, Mumbai
Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers and a leading cause of death all over the world. It is also the commonest cancer and cause of cancer-related mortality among Indian men. Anyone can get lung cancer, although smoking is the number one cause of the disease. In fact, a growing number of non-smokers in India, are diagnosed with lung cancer today. Lung cancer, like other cancers, can be fatal. However, effective diagnoses and new treatments have improved the survival rates of patients.
Lung cancer is a type of cancer that occurs when lung cells divide uncontrollably, causing tumours to grow and spread to other parts of the body. Lung cancer can go undiagnosed for a long time until the disease is advanced. Small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer are the two major types of lung cancer.
