English/Nat A new laser therapy is offering fresh hope for lung cancer patients. Photo dynamic therapy (PDT) is a new, two-step cancer treatment procedure that combines laser technology, fiber optics and a special light-activated drug called Photofrin. With PDT, cancer cells can be selectively destroyed while normal cells are spared. The Federal Drug Administration recently granted approval for the procedure, making PDT available for some lung cancer patients. Lung cancer kills more people than any other cancer. But now, patients suffering from advanced lung cancer have an alternative to risky surgery. The Federal Drug Administration has just approved a tumour blasting procedure that combines special light-activated drugs with laser technology. Medical physicists and doctors are calling this one of the most promising new weapons in the war against cancer. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The drug is not active initially after injection. It is activated by light, a 630 wavelength light which is actually present in sunlight." SUPER CAPTION: Dr. Jim Luketich, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center The procedure works because a special photo reactive drug accumulates in the cancer cells. Then, when a red laser light shines on the area, the drug switches on creating a toxic form of oxygen that destroys the tumour. In a matter of a few days the tumour shrivels up and dies. SOUNDBITE: (English) "If you look at the tumour cells for instance in the lungs or the esophagus two days later, what you see is the tumor has all turned white and is just crumbling away." SUPER CAPTION: Paul Rehkopf, Physicist, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Photo dynamic therapy became possible when breakthroughs in physics led to new lasers capable of penetrating deep into the tissue. This allowed physicians to use PDT to treat internal tissues such as the esophagus or lungs without complicated surgeries. The only side effect is a sensitivity to sunlight for a few months and patients like Bill Wagner will certainly trade that for another chance at cancer free life. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I was in the house most of the time for about ten weeks, but believe me it is a small price to pay to get a clean bill of health." SUPER CAPTION: Bill Wagner, Patient The technique is used primarily to treat tumours under the skin or on the lining of internal organs, but physicists are now looking at different lasers and photosensitizers that could treat cancers located deeper within the body. The FDA approved the cancer laser blasting surgery on December 23, 1998 and physicians and patients around the world are optimistic about the results thus far.

James doctors are using lasers to improve the quality of life for some patients whose lung cancer has affected their windpipes. In some late-stage lung cancers, tumors can go through patients’ windpipes or press against them, blocking the airways. James pulmonology expert Dr. Shaheen Islam explains how an advanced laser surgery, directed through a patient’s mouth and into the windpipe, can vaporize the tumor, open the airway, and if needed, insert a stent to further open the airway, restoring better breathing. The procedure, performed under local anesthesia, improves patients’ quality of life, and often enables them to proceed to additional treatment, such as chemotherapy or further surgery.
Laser light at the tip of the fiber raises the temperature of the tumor cells and damages or destroys them. LITT is sometimes used to shrink tumors in the liver. Photo dynamic therapy (PDT) is another type of cancer treatment that uses lasers.

Al Burne, 47, knew a liver transplant was likely. He had been diagnosed with a rare genetic liver and lung disorder - Alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency - in 1987 and was told that eventually a transplant might be necessary. But then he learned last Christmas that cancer had struck and his treatment options were sparse, let alone the chance for a new liver. But the North Carolina resident and father of two looked to Mayo Clinic, which was offering a new treatment that destroys cancer cells with heat. Mayo Clinic physicians are among the first in the country to use MRI-guided laser ablation to heat up and destroy tumors in the liver, kidney and prostate.

Cancer is a disease caused by mutation of cells that make up the body. There are three ways to treat cancer, roughly divided into "surgical operation", "drug treatment" and "laser treatment" However, as cancer progresses it becomes more difficult to treat. Among them, "lung cancer" has a very high mortality rate and is considered to be difficult to recover. The most common cause of lung cancer is smoking. Here, I will introduce 7 dangerous signs issued by lung cancer in ranking format, in order of risk. If you are a smoker, please check if these symptoms apply. Please Subscribe!

A brain tumor occurs when abnormal cells form within the brain.There are two main types of tumors: malignant or cancerous tumors and benign tumors. Cancerous tumors can be divided into primary tumors that start within the brain, and secondary tumors that have spread from somewhere else, known as brain metastasis tumors. All types of brain tumors may produce symptoms that vary depending on the part of the brain involved. These symptoms may include headaches, seizures, problem with vision, vomiting, and mental changes.The headache is classically worse in the morning and goes away with vomiting.More specific problems may include difficulty in walking, speaking, and with sensation. As the disease progresses unconsciousness may occur. The cause of most brain tumors is unknown. Uncommon risk factors include inherited neurofibromatosis, exposure to vinyl chloride, Epstein–Barr virus, and ionizing radiation.The evidence for mobile phones is not clear. The most common types of primary tumors in adults are meningiomas (usually benign), and astrocytomas such as glioblastomas. In children, the most common type is a malignant medulloblastoma. Diagnosis is usually by medical examination along with computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging.This is then often confirmed by a biopsy. Based on the findings, the tumors are divided into different grades of severity. Treatment may include some combination of surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Anticonvulsant medication may be needed if seizures occur. Dexamethasone and furosemide may be used to decrease swelling around the tumor. Some tumors grow gradually, requiring only monitoring and possibly needing no further intervention. Treatments that use a person's immune system are being studied. Outcome varies considerably depending on the type of tumor and how far it has spread at diagnosis. Glioblastomas usually have poor outcomes while meningiomas usually have good outcomes. The average five-year survival rate for brain cancer in the United States is 33%. Secondary or metastatic brain tumors are more common than primary brain tumors, with about half of metastases coming from lung cancer. Primary brain tumors occur in around 250,000 people a year globally, making up less than 2% of cancers. In children younger than 15, brain tumors are second only to acute lymphoblastic leukemia as the most common form of cancer.

All melanomas are not alike. A new study, though, has revealed how much different non-sun-related melanomas are from sun-related melanomas. Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer. It is most commonly related to sun exposure. But the cancer can also be genetic in nature and not related to the sun. These types of melanomas are not susceptible to the same treatments as sun-related melanomas. In the study, researchers treated the sample with crizotinib and ceritinib. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved treatments for ALK-positive lung cancer. Researches found that the tumor shrank dramatically. https://www.upi.com/Health_News/2017/10/23/Researchers-find-lung-cancer-driver-in-non-sun-melanoma/4601508787049/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Lung cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in one or both lungs. These abnormal cells do not carry out the functions of normal lung cells and do not develop into healthy lung tissue. As they grow, the abnormal cells can form tumors and interfere with the functioning of the lung, which provides oxygen to the body via the blood. Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Treatment Types Surgery, Radiation, Chemotherapy, Targeted treatments and Immunotherapy Most stage I and stage II non-small cell lung cancers are treated with surgery to remove the tumor. For this procedure, a surgeon removes the lobe, or section, of the lung containing the tumor. Some surgeons use video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). For this procedure, the surgeon makes a small incision, or cut, in the chest and inserts a tube called a thoracoscope. The thoracoscope has a light and a tiny camera connected to a video monitor so that the surgeon can see inside the chest. A lung lobe can then be removed through the scope, without making a large incision in the chest. For people with non-small cell lung tumors that can be surgically removed, evidence suggests that chemotherapy after surgery, known as “adjuvant chemotherapy,” may help prevent the cancer from returning. This is particularly true for patients with stage II and IIIA disease. Questions remain about whether adjuvant chemotherapy applies to other patients and how much they benefit. For people with stage III lung cancer that cannot be removed surgically, doctors typically recommend chemotherapy in combination with definitive (high-dose) radiation treatments. In stage IV lung cancer, chemotherapy is typically the main treatment. In stage IV patients, radiation is used only for palliation of symptoms............ Non Small Cell Lung Cancer Treatment

Indian doctors perform lung surgery at a hospital. They cut the skin and pull the skin apart with surgical instruments. The cut will go from the front of the chest wall to the back, passing just underneath the armpit. These ribs will be separated or a rib may be removed. Lung on this side will be deflated so that air will not move in and out of it during surgery. This makes it easier for the surgeon to operate on the lung. The surgeon may not know how much of the lung needs to be removed until the chest is open and the lung can be seen. The surgeon may also remove lymph nodes in this area. After surgery, one or more drainage tubes will be placed into the chest area to drain out fluids that build up. These tubes are called chest tubes. After the surgery, the surgeon will close the ribs, muscles, and skin with sutures. Open lung surgery may take from 2 to 6 hours.

Novilase® in clinical development and commercialization efforts for a FDA patented device that enables breast surgeons and radiologists to ablate tumors with image-guided heat laser therapy as a minimally-invasive alternative to surgical lumpectomy. With Novilase, the laser delivers energy directly and destroys the tumor with heat, rather than cut out with a scalpel. By carefully monitoring and controlling the laser energy, Novilase confirms the precise ablation of the targeted tissue. Because Novilase is less invasive, it can be performed in 30-60 minutes in an outpatient setting, such as a breast center or doctor's office, using only local anesthesia. The Novilase® Clinical Trial (BR-002) is an investigational research study in early-stage breast cancer. For specific inclusion/exclusion criteria visit http://www.clinicaltrials.gov (# NCT01478438).
