Lung cancer symptoms: How long have you had your cough? Warning sign of the deadly disease

LUNG cancer symptoms don ’t usually show in the early stages, but like any cancer, spotting symptoms as early as possible can increase a person’s chance of survival. Having a cough for a certain amount of time is a sign of the disease to watch out for.

A case of pulmonary nodular lymphoid hyperplasia (PNLH) that was difficult to diagnosis because of an abnormal shadow that was reduced due to antibiotics use was described. Histopathological examination indicated a diagnosis of PNLH and the pathological evidence of bacteria suggested an infective aetiology for PNLH. Pulmonary nodular lymphoid hyperplasia (PNLH) involves proliferative lymphatic tissues and is reportedly associated with inflammatory disease or autoimmune disorders. Herein, we describe a case of PNLH with difficult diagnosis because of antibiotics therapy ‐induced reduction in the abnormal tumour shadow. An...

Abstract A 62-year-old woman with a history of lung resection for lung cancer was admitted to our hospital due to cough, which became progressively more severe. She was diagnosed with chronic empyema with bronchopleural fistula (BPF) of the right upper bronchial stump. Although a pedicled muscle flap was transposed to the empyema cavity, the fistula remained. We used a vacuum-assisted closure system after open-window thoracotomy and observed the cavity reduction with expansion of the transposed muscle flap. We quantitatively evaluated the dynamics of the cavity change using a three-dimensional image analysis syste...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Most patients diagnosed with lung cancer present with symptoms. It is not known if the proportions of patients presenting with each symptom has changed over time. Identifying trends in lung cancer's presenting symptoms is important for medical education and early-diagnosis initiatives. AIM: To identify the first reported symptom of possible lung cancer (index symptom), and to test whether the percentages of patients with each index symptom changed during 2000-2017. DESIGN AND SETTING: This was a serial, cross-sectional, observational study using UK Clinical Practice Research Datalink...

What is a coronavirus? Coronaviruses are a group of viruses that cause diseases in mammals, including humans, and birds. Why are they called coronaviruses? The name derives from the fact that the viral capsule has a “halo” or “crown” surrounding it. What do coronaviruses do? In humans, the virus infects the airways giving rise to flu-like symptoms, a runny nose, cough, sore throat and fever, these are usually mild, but in rare cases can be lethal. Is there a vaccine against coronaviruses? No. Are there any drugs to block or treat infection? No. When were coronaviruses first discovered? In the 1960s ...

Conclusion Anlotinib effectively controlled the growth of NSCLC and improved TAO related symptoms. Anlotinib maybe normalize disordered growth of blood vessels through the VEGF signaling pathway, rather than simply inhibiting angiogenesis.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Although cough is a common and distressing symptom in lung cancer patients, there is almost no evidence to guide management. Aprepitant, a centrally acting neurokinin-1 inhibitor, significantly decreased cough frequency in a pilot study. METHODS: Patients with advanced lung cancer and cough lasting over two weeks despite a cough suppressant, were randomized 1:1 to aprepitant 125 mg orally on day one then 80 mg orally on days two to seven with physician's choice of antitussive; or to physician's choice of antitussive alone. Evaluation was at baseline and on days three, seven, nine and twel...
