Radiation Treatment for Lung Cancer
Radiation therapy uses high-energy rays or particles to kill cancer cells. It can be given along with chemotherapy or after chemo has been completed. “Our goal is always to be very accurate and precise with our treatment and that and, and, and how we do that and how we target cancer cells has changed a lot in the last several decades,” says Dr. Arie Dosoretz, a radiation oncologist on the medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. Radiation therapy can be particularly effective for treating early lung cancer. Stage one lung cancer involves small nodules in the lung that are typically somewhere between one to two centimeters in size. “And we know that if we can get a big dose of radiation to these spots we have a much better chance of controlling them,” says Dr. Arie Dosoretz. A treatment called stereotactic radiation therapy uses several smaller beams that are aimed at the tumor from different angles. Going smaller can be better smarter in many ways. Patients have a limit to radiation exposure. Fewer applications that are fine-tuned give doctors room to come back again if needed. Giving patients additional options for future recurrence. “We’re able to treat these lesions somewhere between three to five treatments to the lung and spare virtually all normal tissue uh and then very effectively control the tumor, too,” says Dr. Arie Dosoretz. Early results of this type of radiation treatment have been very promising, with a low risk of complications. It is also being studied for tumors that have spread to other parts of the body, such as the bones or liver.

New Treatment for Early Stage Lung Cancer
Learn more about this clinical trial http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00840749 Patients who cannot have surgery for an early stage lung cancer may now benefit from a new radiation therapy technology called stereotactic radiation therapy (STARS). This treatment can typically be given in 3 or 4 days as opposed to the 5 or 6 weeks with conventional radiation therapy. For patients who CAN have surgery, an operation that removes the lobe of the lung containing the cancer and lymph nodes is the current standard of care. Because of the good results seen so far with stereotactic radiation therapy, it is now being considered as an alternative to surgery for patient who are fit enough to have surgery. Jack Roth, M.D., in the thoracic surgery department at MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses this clinical trial (STARS) that compares stereotactic radiation therapy with traditional surgery.

Why Cancers Spread to the Brain
A feature of advanced cancer is its movement to other parts of the body. Called metastatic or stage 4 cancer, different forms of disease tend to migrate to certain places. "And one of the favorite organs of the body where cancers can spread to is the brain," says Dr. Constantine Mantz, radiation oncologist on Lee Memorial Health System's medical staff. When a brain tumor is discovered, the first thing doctors do is determine its origin - whether it started in the brain, as brain cancer, or came from somewhere else. "For example, we order an MRI on a patient, we see that there's not just one tumor but there's a number of them and they're scattered throughout the brain- that typically represents a metastatic cancer. That's one that has seeded the brain in a number of areas within it from some source outside of the brain," says Dr. Mantz. Why the brain? It has to do with our plumbing. "The brain consumes about 25% of all the oxygen that our body takes in, and in order to consume that much oxygen to do all of its functioning and work its needs to have a pretty healthy blood supply. And in part because that really dense blood supply is a favorite place for metastasis," says Dr. Mantz. About a quarter of all cancers that spread through the body will go to the brain. Metastatic brain tumors are more common than tumors that actually start in the brain. Some of the most common forms are breast cancer, lung cancer, melanoma, and kidney cancer. Treating it can involve surgery and radiation. Advanced radiation techniques are helping patients by delivering precise, high dose radiation to hard to reach tumors. "We will use specifically this stereotactic radiotherapy to treat challenging, difficult tumors in the brain, tumors that otherwise wrap themselves around critical structures that we want to avoid. Whereas in the recent years past we just could not offer a effective or safe treatment for them," says Dr. Mantz. As more in known about cancers and how they behave, doctors can find better ways to treat it or detect it in it's earliest stage.

Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for lung cancer
Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), also called stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR), is a type of radiation therapy in which a few very high doses of radiation are delivered to small, well-defined tumors. The goal is to deliver a radiation dose that is high enough to kill the cancer while minimizing exposure to surrounding healthy organs. Barbara Pool is one of six lung cancer patients per day who go through stereotactic body radiation therapy and she is the 1000th patient to receive this type of radiation at MD Anderson. Joe Chang, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology, oversaw Pool's SRBT treatment. "We only received treatment Monday through Thursday and it went by pretty fast," Staggs says. "The treatment lasted less than an hour each day."

Radiation Therapy for Lung Cancer from ASTRO
Lung cancer, also known as carcinoma of the lung or pulmonary carcinoma, 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. The main primary types are small-cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) and non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). The most common symptoms are coughing (including coughing up blood), weight loss, shortness of breath, and chest pains. https://goo.gl/HZRxv9 https://goo.gl/5u8RXg https://goo.gl/GXEfKc https://goo.gl/VCttU9 http://goo.gl/UreqjX

Moving lung tumor during imaging (radiation therapy)
A lung tumor is challenging to treat with radiation therapy (http://www.uihealthcare.org/radiation-therapy/) as it moves in different directions as you breathe. Our clinic at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics uses 4D CT scans with CBCT and 3D imaging technology to build a complete movie of the whole lung and the tumor as you breathe. This is then added to a timed system that only turns the radiation beam on when the tumor is in the target area, minimizing the radiation dose to the normal lung.

9 Early Signs of Lung Cancer
Lung cancer may not produce any noticeable symptoms in the early stages. In approximately 40 percent of people diagnosed with lung cancer, the diagnosis is made after the disease has advanced. In one-third of those diagnosed, the cancer has reached stage 3. Cough that won't quit Be on alert for a new cough that lingers. A cough associated with a cold or respiratory infection will go away in a week or two, but a persistent cough that lingers can be a symptom of lung cancer. Don't be tempted to dismiss a stubborn cough, whether it is dry or produces mucus. See your doctor right away. They will listen to your lungs and may order an X-ray or other tests. Change in a cough Pay attention to any changes in a chronic cough, particularly if you are a smoker. If you are coughing more often, your cough is deeper or has hoarse sound, or you are coughing up blood or more mucus than usual, it's time to make a doctor's appointment. If a family member or friend experiences these changes, suggest that they visit their doctor. Breathing changes Shortness of breath or becoming easily winded can also be possible symptoms of lung cancer. Changes in breathing can occur if lung cancer blocks or narrows an airway, or if fluid from a lung tumor builds up in the chest. Make a point of noticing when you feel winded or short of breath. If you find it's difficult to breath after climbing stairs or performing tasks you could do before without having a hard time breathing, don't ignore it. Pain in the chest area Lung cancer may produce pain in the chest, shoulders, or back. An aching feeling may not be associated with coughing. Tell your doctor if you notice any type of chest pain, whether it is sharp, dull, constant, or comes and goes. You should also note whether it is confined to a specific area or is occurring throughout your chest. When lung cancer causes chest pain, the discomfort may result from enlarged lymph nodes or metastasis to the chest wall, the lining around the lungs called pleura, or the ribs. Wheezing When airways become constricted, blocked, or inflamed, the lungs produce a wheezing or whistling sound when you breathe. Wheezing can be associated with multiple causes, some of which are benign and easily treatable. However, wheezing is also a symptom of lung cancer, which is why it merits your doctor's attention. Don't assume that wheezing is caused by asthma or allergies. Have your doctor confirm the cause. Raspy, hoarse voice If you hear a significant change in your voice, or if someone else points out that your voice sounds deeper, hoarse, or raspier, get checked out by your doctor. Hoarseness can be caused by a simple cold, but this symptom may point to something more serious when it persists for more than two weeks. Hoarseness related to lung cancer can occur when the tumor affects the nerve that controls the larynx, or voice box. Drop in weight An unexplained weight loss of 10 pounds or more may be associated with lung cancer or another type of cancer. When cancer is present, this drop in weight may result from cancer cells using energy. It could also result from shifts in the way the body uses energy from food. Don't write off a change in your weight if you haven't been trying to shed pounds. It may be a clue to a change in your health. Bone pain Lung cancer that has spread to the bones may produce pain in the back or in other areas of the body. This pain may worsen at night while resting on the back. It may be difficult to differentiate between bone and muscle pain. Bone pain is often worse at night and increases with movement. Additionally, lung cancer is sometimes associated with shoulder, arm, or neck pain, although this is less common. Be attentive to your aches and pains, and discuss them with your doctor. Headache Headaches may be a sign that lung cancer has spread to the brain. However, not all headaches are associated with brain metastases. Sometimes, a lung tumor may create pressure on the superior vena cava. This is the large vein that moves blood from the upper body to the heart. The pressure can also trigger headaches.
