What is Prognosis in Bronchial Carcinoma
metastases are common, giving rise to severe pain and pathological fractures.
Non-Metastatic extra pulmonary manifestations:
approximately 10 percent of small cell Tumours are thought to produce ectopic
hormones at some stage, clinically important extra pulmonary manifestations are
relatively rare apart from finger clubbing.
Metastases in the lung are very common and usually present as round shadows 1.5 3 cm in diameter. They may be detected on chest X ray in patients already diagnosed as having carcinoma. The primary is usually in the
nearly always develop in the parenchyma and are often relatively asymptomatic
even when the chest X ray shows extensive pulmonary metastases.
Primary bronchial carcinoma
Single pulmonary metastases can be removed surgically but, as CT scans usually show the presence of small metastases undetected on chest X ray, surgery is seldom performed.
overall prognosis in bronchial carcinoma is very poor. Less than 10 percent of
patients survive five years after diagnosis. The best prognosis is with well-differentiated
squamous Tumours, which have not metastatised and are amenable to surgical treatment.
is by resection of the pulmonary lobe or segment containing the tumour along with
the bronchus from which it arises. Occasionally when surgical resection is not
possible local removal of the tumour tissue from the bronchial from which it arises.
