Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt is battling Lung Cancer and is being told that he has advanced-stage cancer. Due to chest pain and difficulty in breathing, he was recently admitted to Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai.
However, the good thing is that he has not got infection of Kovid-19 with it. On August 10, he was discharged from the hospital and now it is reported that he has lung cancer.
Please tell that every year about 55 thousand cases of lung cancer occur in India. The more worrying thing in this is that 50 thousand of these people die, while only 5 thousand people are saved.
Such a large number of people get caught in the cheeks of untimely times, the biggest reason behind this is the lack of knowledge of the right treatment options. In this, the figure of death looks so big also, Because, in the initial stages of this disease, the patient gets very little information.
Patients in whom lung cancer is detected in the initial stage, there is a high chance of saving their lives. This information was given by the Medical Oncologist Dr. Harsh Vardhan Atreya in a press conference in Lucknow last year.
If a person smokes bidi, cigarette, hookah, or is a passive smoker i.e. someone smokes around him then both these situations are dangerous. This smoke or pollution pollutes our skin, hair, walls, furniture, carpets, cushions, and other places.
Amidst all this, our lungs also cause damage to our lungs. Dr. Atreya told in his press conference that the number of lung cancer patients in India is increasing rapidly due to passive smoking and pollution.
Unfortunately, it will be said that medical science has made a lot of progress, but in spite of this, the complete cure of lung cancer is not possible yet. On getting information in the initial stage, the patient is most likely to be saved. You can identify some symptoms of lung cancer at home like this-
Bleeding with mucus
Finger clubbing is also considered to be its main feature.
According to Cancer Research UK, lumps and widening of fingers (finger clubbing) occur in this way.
First of all, the lower part of the nails starts softening. Later, the skin near the nails becomes shiny.
Nails begin to turn awkwardly and look unsightly. It is also called the Scarmouth Sign.
Finally, the ends of the nails become larger. They look like drumstick, so they are also called drumstick fingers.
According to doctors, the blood flow towards the fingers and fingernails increases. Due to which soft tissue starts accumulating on the tip of fingers and clubbing starts. However, more research is needed in this regard.
This symptom is seen in 35 percent of people with non-small cell lung cancer.
Only 4 percent of people with small cell lung cancer show this symptom.
This symptom is also seen in mesothelioma cancer affecting the lungs layer and chest.
Get both your hands in front of your eyes.
Now try sticking the first finger (index finger) of both hands together.
In normal condition, a diamond-shaped space should be seen between the nails.
