Lung cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the lungs. It is the leading cause of cancer deaths in Singapore. There are two main types of lung cancer: non-small cell lung cancer and small cell lung cancer.

Non-small cell lung cancer is the most common type, accounting for about 85% of cases. It tends to grow and spread slower than small cell lung cancer. There are several subtypes of non-small cell lung cancer, including squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, and large cell carcinoma.

Small cell lung cancer is a more aggressive type of lung cancer that tends to spread more quickly to other parts of the body. It is often found at a later stage and is less common, accounting for about 15% of cases.

Symptoms of lung cancer may include a persistent cough, chest pain, shortness of breath, weight loss, and coughing up blood. These symptoms may not appear until the cancer has progressed to a later stage.

Risk factors for developing lung cancer include smoking tobacco, exposure to secondhand smoke, exposure to certain chemicals and substances, such as asbestos and radon, and having a family history of lung cancer.

Diagnosis of lung cancer may include imaging tests, such as a chest X-ray or CT scan, and a biopsy to confirm the diagnosis.

Treatment options for lung cancer may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, or a combination of these approaches. The specific treatment plan will depend on the stage and type of lung cancer, as well as the patient's overall health.

Prevention of lung cancer includes quitting smoking and avoiding exposure to secondhand smoke and other known carcinogens. It is also important to get regular screenings, as early detection can improve the chances of successful treatment.
