About Lung Cancer

The lungs carry the oxygen necessary for the vital
functions of all organisms to the body. Lung cancer occurs when cells in the
lungs take on cancerous characteristics (uncontrolled and limitless
multiplication and growth). Lung cancer is top of the ranks both in terms of
frequency and cancer-related deaths. However, very few people understand the
significance of this, or realize the risks they face.  Early diagnosis,
and a concomitant increase in survival rates, has been greatly facilitated by
new methods of treatment. For these reasons, it is important to know and look
out for the early warning signs that should lead you to seek advice from your

Are people with family members who have lung
cancer at higher risk?   

Yes. People with family members who have contracted lung
cancer at an early age (before reaching 50) are at twice the risk. This risk
increases with smoking and the number of cigarettes the person

How many types of lung cancer are

There are many types of lung cancer, but the disease may
be categorized into 2 main groups in terms of its behavior, and approaches to

Small cell lung cancer 

Non- small cell lung cancer 

Are there other treatment methods that improve the quality of life?  

Certain surgical and endoscopic procedures, radiotherapy,
and pain relief methods are available to treat the disease at different stages,
designed to reduce complaints and improve the quality of life. Pleurodesis is a
procedure carried out to evacuate fluid that collects between the lungs and the
rib cage and can cause shortness of breath. Various surgical treatments and
stent applications serve to keep the airways free of tumor-related blockages
while laser treatment can be used to reduce the size of tumors within the
airways. Radiotherapy shrinks tumors that are causing respiratory difficulties,
while effective pain management and relief also contribute to improving the
quality of life. Once again, the most appropriate method and its correct timing
need to be determined within the principles of a multidisciplinary approach
involving joint decisions taken by specialists in the fields of chest diseases,
chest surgery, radiation oncology, medical oncology and pain relief.

Do other tumors apart from lung cancer ever appear
within the thorax?

In rare cases, cancers in the lymph nodes around the
pleura and originating in other structures can appear within the thorax. These
tumors are treated with surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, either in
isolation or combination. These cases are treated at Yeditepe University Hospital
through the collaborative efforts of the Departments of Chest Surgery, Chest
Diseases and Medical Oncology.

How is lung cancer treated at Yeditepe University

YEDİTEPE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL is equipped with the most
advanced technology and diagnostic capacity for the diagnosis and treatment of
patients suspected of having lung cancer. All advanced diagnostic tests are
completed within a few days of the patient’s admission.  Definitively
diagnosed lung cancer cases in which the biopsy has undergone pathologic
examination (within one or two days) are referred to the LUNG CANCER COUNCIL
for discussion and determination of the most appropriate method of treatment.
This Council consists of specialists in medical oncology, chest surgery, chest
diseases, pathology, radiology and nuclear medicine. Our hospital’s own PET/CT
equipment provides patients with a significant advantage in terms of disease

Before reaching a final decision, every patient undergoes
detailed evaluation to assess their suitability for treatment, lung capacity,
cardiac function and any issues with other systems. Only then is a decision
meticulously reached on the most appropriate method of treatment. Doctors are
available to patients 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, in the event that any
problems arise. As doctors working at the Lung Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment
Center, our aim is to offer all our patients diagnosis and treatment with the
minimum of discomfort, within the shortest possible time, in the best possible
manner, thus facilitating the longest possible lifespan at the highest possible
quality of life.
