Brandon Durepos's insight:

Lung Cancer

 

Lung cancer is abnormal cells that grow uncontrollably and usually start in one lung. These abnormal cells do not grow properly and spread rapidly throughout the lungs causing tumours. Tumours in the lung become bigger and bigger and as they do so they make it harder for the lungs to provide the bloodstream with oxygen.

 

The symptons of lung cancer include various things such as long, painful coughing, trouble breathing and swallowing, change in color of the mucus, pain in your chest, shoulder and or back, hoarseness of the voice, and if you cough up blood.

  interesting facts

 

 

 

   According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 7.6 million deaths globally each year are caused by cancer; cancer represents 13% of all global deaths. As seen below, lung cancer is by far the number one cancer killer.

 The National Cancer Institute says, by the end of 2012 there will have been 226,160 new lung cancer diagnoses and 160,340 lung-cancer related deaths in the USA alone.

Lung Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells that start off in our lungs. the cells usually line the air passage. abnormal cells become tumors. they slow down the lungs ability to provide the bloodstream with oxygen. primary lung cancer starts in the lungs. Secondary lung cancer starts somewhere else and slowly makes its way toward the lungs. 1,370,000 people die each year on planet earth due to lung cancer

 

 

cancer is a result of cells that uncontrollably grow and dont die. programmed cell death is called apoptosis. when this fails cancer will forms. Lung cancer happens when a lungs cells gene mutation makes the cell unable to correct DNA damage and unable to commit suicide. SCARY STUFF MAN
