learn more about ourLUNG CANCER AREA

El cáncer de pulmón es el más frecuente en el mundo occidental y es el  que peor pronóstico tiene.  El cáncer de pulmón surge por la proliferación exagerada y sin control  de determinadas células del pulmón, causando problemas locales por  ocupación de espacio y compresión de estructuras cercanas. Si no se  controla a tiempo, las células malignas llegan a otros órganos del  cuerpo (metástasis) por la circulación sanguínea o linfática.

La prevención es una estrategia eficaz frente al cáncer de pulmón ya que el pronóstico en estadios precoces, cuando puede resecarse todo el tumor y no hay invasión de ganglio, es muy bueno. En estos casos se puede conseguir la curación hasta en un 80% de los pacientes.
