Lung Cancer & Adenosquamous Cancer
The lungs are spongy organs that take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide. Cancer that occurs in the breathing organs of the body are generally caused by smoking, although people who do not smoke can also get this kind of cancer. It’s the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. There are 2 main kinds of lung cancer: small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer, which is more common.
Adenosquamous lung carcinoma is rare kind of malignant tumor that develops in the lung and it has cancerous squamous cells as well as malignant glandular cells. It generally starts in the peripheral lung area and can cause difficulty breathing, chest pain, fatigue, weight loss, and appetite loss. Most cases of this kind of carcinoma happen in patients that are older than 65 and have been exposed to cigarette smoke, secondhand smoke, air pollution, or chemicals such as radon.
