lung carcinoma treatment..



  • My father was diagnosed with lung carcinoma tumor two weeks ago. He has never smoked a cigarette in his life and has always maintained a very healthy lifestyle. What could be the cause for this? Is there any recommended treatment? Please help.



  • Hi Ritika,

    I am so sorry to hear about your father's diagnosis. I know it must not be easy, but we are here to help you in whatever way we can. In response to your question, lung carcinoid comprises of 1-2% of all lung cancers. The exact cause, however, is not known. Unlike other types of lung cancers, carcinoid tumors are not associated with smoking or drinking. These tumors can be treated by surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation depending on the extent of the disease and performance status of the patient. Let us know if we can help you with anything else. Take care, and God bless!
