Primary lung cancer
Primary lung cancer has three other types of lung cancer: small carcinoma, non-small carcinoma and adenocarcinoma lung cancers.

Non-small lung cancer has again the other sub-categories and they are adenocarcinoma that evolves from phlegm, large cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Sometimes, even oncologists can find it difficult to say which one of the above cancers a patient has, but it doesn’t matter very much because, all of these large cell cancers are treated in the same way. Mesothelioma is one of the not so frequent lung cancers and it attacks pleura, which is a gentle covering that is settled around our lungs. In most cases, it is caused by and exposure to asbestos.

The treatment for this type of cancer differs and depends upon the place where it has started, because, if it has started in the breast, for example, then the treatment will be similar to the breast cancer treatment.
