Talk about cancer discoloration
When it comes to cancer, everyone is subconsciously afraid.
Once the medical report finds that the cancer has spread
No matter what position, what degree.
I feel like my life has come to an end
Joy has nothing to do with the rest of my life.
A person’s life is a circle. We start from the starting point, walk around and return to the original point. This life is complete.
Some people are big, some people are small, but whether it is big or small, in the end, people always have to return to the origin of.
Many people think cancer is a surefire way to die, but even without cancer, everyone will eventually die.
Although the lives of many patients have been taken away by cancer, with the advancement of medical technology and the increase of treatment methods, we can Through scientific treatment, the survival time of patients can be prolonged to a certain extent.
Some cancer patients live a long time, but others live very short lives. A lot of people don’t understand what’s going on here.
Especially once the advanced lung cancer is diagnosed, many patients or their family members are very concerned about how long they can live with advanced lung cancer?
So, let’s talk about this issue today. How long can lung cancer last?
【What is advanced lung cancer ? 】
Advanced lung cancer, we generally refer to stage IV lung cancer, that is, distant metastatic lung cancer.
For example, liver, bone, brain metastasis, or malignant pleural effusion caused by tumor invasion.
LateLung cancer patients are generally not the first choice for surgical treatment, and need comprehensive treatment through chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy or radiotherapy. Therefore, they are also called late stages of cancer.
【Advanced lung cancer can survive how long? 】
There are no two identical leaves in the world, and people cannot step into the same river .
There are no identical patients and no identical cancers.
The so-called evidence-based medicine is just a probability. Statistical probabilities are uncertain. It’s just a vague concept. For example, the doctor said that the effective rate of targeted therapy is 70%. How should patients understand?
Whether you belong to the effective 70% or the invalid 30%, in fact, no one, including doctors, can be sure.
This is especially true for postoperative patients, whose 5-year survival rate is 60%. It’s also unclear if 60% of them survived 5 years or 40% didn’t.
Admitting some unclear things is also a scientific attitude, a more rational attitude. After all, miracles can happen at any time, and some things cannot be explained by science. Even the most professional people can’t tell you the answer decisively.
Live every day with a positive attitude, live up to life, and leave the rest to time.
Recently saw a An article titled “Do You Dare to Get Married Without Knowing the Marriage Law?” “, I looked at it, smiled helplessly, and then slid down the interface.
No need to look, I can roughly guess The content in it is nothing more than telling everyone how to protect their property so as not to suffer in divorce.
Divorce is one of the options for retreating before marriage One, I find it pathetic.
Sometimes I communicate with colleagues. How can I not get a divorce? If you want to divorce, shouldn’t you have such a concept or idea in your mind?
When a couple encounters a problem, the first thing they can think of is how to resolve it, instead of considering divorce first.
The same is true for tumors.
When some cancer patients have not started treatment, they are thinking about what to do if they become drug resistant? Is it different from thinking about divorce when you are not married?
What you need is to live each day well. When you encounter problems, doctors, patients, and nurses will solve them together. Cancer programs work better and last longer when you don’t have the concept of drug resistance in your head.
Time will not stand still because of your sadness and sadness. The more sand you hold in your hand, the more you lose. Instead of living in fear all the time, it is better to live happily every day.
Even if you’re not sick, isn’t it a better attitude to live each day as if it were your last? Love yourself, love your family, love your life, so that even if something happens suddenly one day, you will have less regrets.
How long can you live with advanced lung cancer?
If the doctor clearly tells you 2 or 3 years, then you may be counting the next It’s time. The closer the time gets, the more worried you become. Maybe, one day you will die of worry instead of cancer.
So, it is better to be confused about some things, but it is difficult to be confused about life.
There are obvious individual differences among different individuals. For example,Generally, the life cycle of advanced lung cancer is shorter than that of early and mid-stage lung cancer, but there are also some advanced lung cancer patients. The life cycle is longer than that of patients with early and mid-stage lung cancer, which depends on the pathological type, treatment method, treatment effect and physical condition.So it is most important to actively cooperate with doctors after diagnosis
【What are the treatments for advanced lung cancer?】
With the continuous improvement of medical technology, there are more and more treatment methods for advanced lung cancer, resulting in a longer life cycle.
Systemic chemotherapy is still the most classic treatment for advanced lung cancer. In the past, lung cancer patients suffered from The torment of side effects of chemotherapy. With the application of drugs that reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and the replacement of chemotherapy drugs, the side effects of systemic chemotherapy are getting smaller and smaller under the premise of ensuring the effect, which greatly reduces the suffering of patients.
A movie “Death Struggle” let everyone know about gene-targeted drugs. In the movie, the sharp contrast between leukemia patients before and after taking the drug just reflects the effect of targeted therapy.
Patients with advanced lung cancer can also use gene-targeted drugs if they have gene mutations. For example, more than half of patients with EGFR gene sensitive mutations can survive for more than 3 years, and more than half of patients with ALK fusion mutations Can survive for 5 years or even longer.
Now the immunotherapy of lung cancer is becoming more and more popular. After a large number of clinical studies, it has been found that by blocking cancer cell PD-L1 and T lymphocyte PD-1 The combination of can mobilize ourImmune cells in the body that kill cancer cells. This treatment is called immunotherapy.
Using immunotherapy, some patients can survive for more than 5 years, and these patients are also called “super survivors”.
【What should patients with advanced lung cancer pay attention to? 】
The most important thing for patients with advanced lung cancer is the state of mind. Although advanced lung cancer cannot be cured at present, people are working hard to transform it into a chronic disease similar to hypertension and diabetes, and gradually realize “survival with tumor”.
So, once diagnosed with advanced lung cancer, the most important thing is to adjust your mentality, actively cooperate with the doctor for treatment, through regular diet and Work and rest regularly, and strive to improve your immunity. Only when the immunity is improved can the tumor cells be better eliminated.
More and more lung cancer patients have successfully prolonged their survival period under diversified treatment and survived with the tumor for a long time. The dream of turning lung cancer into a chronic disease has come true.
However, with the continuous update of anti-cancer methods, especially molecular targeted drugs, immunotherapy With the emergence of a new generation of treatment methods, the day when human beings can completely defeat cancer will no longer be far away. Let us witness this day together! [/s2/]
