Lung cancer

MEXICO IN FIGURES:

Lung cancer is the leading cause of death in Mexico due to malignant tumors.
Annually, 8,600 new cases are diagnosed and almost the same number, 8,000, died in that period.
ONLY 0.6% of cases are diagnosed early, 24% at the locally advanced stage and 65% at the terminal stage.
It is not only caused by smoking, but also by exposure to smoke and pollutants.
22 people die daily due to lung cancer in Mexico.
Because it can NOT be detected early, the disease is diagnosed in advanced stages and spreads very quickly, since 90% of patients die before 18 months after being diagnosed.
People suffering from this pathology only go to the medical service until they are in an advanced period.
Worldwide, lung cancer occupies the first place of incidence and mortality, represents the main health problem in the field of Oncology and one of the most important in general, being the 10th cause of death worldwide.
A high number of cases are NOT registered and are not even reported as lung cancer because the patient dies with a diagnosis of pneumonia or tuberculosis or other diseases. Therefore, it is considered that the disease is sub-registered.
The vast majority of diagnoses are made when the tumors already measure 3 or 4 centimeters and there are clinical manifestations.
It is estimated that if people considered at high risk of lung cancer were screened early, mortality would be reduced by 20%


Lung cancer is the leading cause of death in Mexico due to malignant tumors.


It is not only caused by smoking, but also by exposure to smoke and pollutants.


Worldwide, lung cancer ranks first in incidence and mortality

CONCLUSION: EARLY DETECTION GENERATES A TIMELY DIAGNOSTIC AND TRANSLATES IN A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO SAVE LIVES.

Lung cancer can affect anyone:

  • It is the most common cancer and the most deadly.
  • Both men and women have the same risk of suffering it.
  • If you are a smoker over 40, you automatically become a member of the risk group.
  • 8,600 deaths in Mexico annually (and the figure is considered sub-registered).

Risk factors for lung cancer include:

  • Smoke tobacco.
  • Be a passive smoker
  • Turning 40 years with a history of smoking.
  • Family history with lung cancer.
  • Contact with polluting factors.
  • Advanced age.
  • Chronic lung diseases.
  • Exposure to radiation and risk factors such as asbestos, chemicals, solvents, etc.

STAGES OF LUNG CANCER:

CANCER OF SMALL CELLS CANCER OF NON-SMALL CELLS
It is considered from 10 to 20% of cancer. It represents the remaining 80 - 90% of the cancer.

For small cell lung cancer, the models to determine the stage in which it is found, are based on the premise of how large the tumor has grown, for example, if it has reached nearby structures or if it has spread to organs or in lymph nodes. The stages are described in scales from 0 to 4; in stage 0, there are no lesions detectable by imaging methods, but abnormalities are found in procedures such as bronchoscopy; Stage 4 shows cancer that has already spread to other parts of the body. ​

Small cell cancer has 2 stages: Extensive and Limited.

NOTE: THE STAGE IN WHICH CANCER IS ESTABLISHED IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTORS TO WORK IN YOUR TREATMENT.
CONCLUSION: EARLY DETECTION GENERATES TIMELY DIAGNOSTIC AND TRANSLATES IN A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO SAVE LIVES.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Why does a BreathLab test work better? Traditional checkups for lung diseases are carried out on a regular basis by techniques such as x-rays. Small shadows can be ignored or ignored, as they are seen as possible benign nodules or damage from other diseases. Treatment may be delayed due to a misinterpretation of the plaque during the early stages of cancer. The tumor grows undetected and can only be diagnosed in stages where it is already larger and its treatment becomes more difficult. With the support of BreathLab, the story may be different, it is estimated that thanks to BreathLab technology, we can detect lung cancer molecules up to 5 years before they are clinically apparent.

SIZE / VISIBILITY DETECTION
0mm Tumors can be detected up to 5 years before they are visible.
2mm Tumors can be detected by high-resolution CT technology.
8mm Tumors can be clearly detected by CT.
40mm The tumors are clinically apparent and there are physical symptoms present.
100mm Death cause

When a tumor is present in the body, molecules are released into the bloodstream. When exhaled, BreathLab technology can detect the Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) present in the sample up to 5 years before they become clinically apparent.
​ Nowadays ,traditional methods for the detection of lung cancer (X-ray / CT scan) ) are associated with radiation exposure to the patient, which can be harmful to health if it is repetitive.
