WHAT IS ADE­NO­CAR­CI­NOMA?

Pick Me Up! Special - - More Real Life -

Ade­no­car­ci­noma is a type of cancer that starts in the glands that line the in­side of the or­gans. It can oc­cur in many places, such as the breasts, colon, lungs, stom­ach, or pan­creas, but as it is a trav­el­ling cancer, it can soon spread to other healthy parts of the body. The most com­mon form of ade­no­car­ci­noma is lung cancer, which af­fects al­most 45 000 peo­ple in the UK every year. Treat­ment op­tions de­pend on the type of ade­no­car­ci­noma and how far it has spread, but can in­clude surgery to re­move the tu­mour, fol­lowed by a course of chemo­ther­apy and ra­di­a­tion.
