Lung cancer

Jump to: navigation, search
Lung cancer (also known as carcinoma of the lung) is a malignant lung tumor characterized by uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. If left untreated this growth can spread beyond the lung by process of metastasis into nearby tissue or other parts of the body. Most cancers that start in the lung known as primary lung cancers are carcinomas that derive from epithelial cells.
