  2. EPIDEMIOLOGY • It is estimated that tobacco kills : • 5 million people globally a year, • Death toll is expected to rise to 8 million per year by the 2030's • 80% deaths occurring in developing countries. • According to research nearly 40 percent of cancers in adult males of Pakistan can be associated with tobacco • 60,000 people die annually in Pakistan from tobacco related deaths (Source: WHO Report 2009)

  3. Normal Lung Smokers Lung

  4. MYTH: Lungs return to normal as soon as someone stops smoking. FACT: While some effects diminish within days, it takes 15-20 years for the lungs to return to (almost) that of a never-smoker

  12. WHAT IS CANCER? Cancer is when cells in a part of the body begin to grow out of control. Although there are many kinds of cancer, they all develop because of out-of-control growth of abnormal cells.

  13. WHAT CAUSES CANCER? Cancer begins with damage (mutations) in DNA.

  14. WHO GETS CANCER? • Anyone can get cancer !!! • Cancer doesn't discriminate • when it comes to race, age or gender.

  15. RISK FACTORS • Family History- 10% of cancers are due to an inherited condition. If cancer is common in your family, it's possible that defective genes are being passed from one generation to the next. • Age • Gender • Environmental factors- chemical exposure, radiation, occupation, diet, tobacco, pollutants. • Cancer is not contagious

  16. LUNG CANCER Lung cancer is the most common cancer causing death among Men and women.

  17. RISK FACTORS FOR LUNGCANCER • Main risk --- smoking ! • Causes genetic changes in cells lining the lungs that ultimately lead to the development of cancer. • Exposure to second-hand smoke, even huqa and sheesha, all increase the risk of developing lung cancer greatly.

  18. SYMPTOMS OF LUNG CANCER • No definite symptoms -- with early stage lung cancer. • Symptoms may include: • Persistent cough • Sputum streaked with blood • Chest pain without apparent cause • Voice change • Recurrent pneumonia or lung infections

  19. LUNG CANCER DIAGNOSIS • Treatable if detected at an early stage. • Various tests to help in the diagnosis: • Chest x-ray • Chest CT (computerized tomography) scan • Bronchoscopy (insertion of a tube into the airways to examine the lining) • Sputum cytology (examination of cells in the phlegm)

  20. TREATMENT OPTIONS • Surgery: to remove cancerous tissue. • Chemotherapy: to destroy cancer cells using anti-cancer medications. • Radiation: to destroy cancer cells using high energy x-rays.

  21. EARLY DETECTION AND PREVENTION • DO NOT SMOKE and/or use tobacco products. • Proper management and treatment of any chronic lung diseases one might have. • Reduce exposure to chemicals involved in increasing risk, such as asbestos


  23. CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR • If you haven't been feeling well, make sure you see a doctor who will evaluate your symptoms. • Cancer, like most illnesses, is treatable when it is diagnosed early, so when you have any of the symptoms discussed before, consult your doctor early.
