Dr. Rohit Suhas Bhingardeve | Dr. Yogesh Wagh | Dr. Ananda More

Abstract: Lung adenocarcinoma is the most common primary lung cancer. It falls under the umbrella of non - small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and has a strong association with previous smoking. While incidence and mortality have declined, it remains the leading cause of cancer deaths. [1]Lung cancer is widespread globally despite new treatment, the 5 yr survival is less than 12 - 15 %. Over the past 4 decades, there has been a marked increase in lung adenocarcinoma in women and this has been linked to smoking. The mean age of diagnosis of lung adenocarcinoma is 20. In the last two decades adenocarcinoma has replaced squamous cell carcinoma of lung as most prevalent non - small cell carcinoma. Adenocarcinoma of the lung usually evolves from the mucosal glands and represents about 40% of all lung cancers. It is the most common subtype to be diagnosed in people who have never smoked. Lung adenocarcinoma usually occurs in the lung periphery, and in many cases, may be found in scars or areas of chronic inflammation. [2] Local spread may occur in the pleura, diaphragm, pericardium or bronchi with advanced disease spreading to mediastinal structures.
