    It is estimated that Nigerians smoke about 93 million cigarette sticks every year and many of these smokers are in fact under-aged. Studies suggest that almost 1.3 billion people from all around the world are in the habit of smoking and this number is growing every day. Moreover, people from developing countries like Nigeria are contributing more smokers to these figures than people from the developed world. There are a large number of students from universities and even secondary schools in Nigeria who are getting addicted to smoking tobacco. Tobacco as such alone is responsible for causing more than 25 types of diseases in humans, including lung cancer. To top it all, absence of state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment facilities for cancer is worsening the lung cancer situation in Nigeria.

    Radiation Therapy for Lung Cancer
    Depending upon the type and stage of lung cancer and various other factors, radiation therapy for lung cancer may be a treatment option. Radiation therapy for lung cancer in limited stage small cell lung cancer can be given to patients at the same time as chemotherapy for treatment of tumor and lymph nodes in chest. Also known as concurrent chemoradiation therapy, radiation therapy is usually begun with the first or second cycle of chemotherapy drugs. Moreover, in some cases radiation therapy for lung cancer is given to the patient after completion of chemotherapy. Radiation therapy for lung cancer is also utilized for shrinking the size of tumors in order to relieve symptoms like pain, cough, bleeding, shortness of breath, trouble in swallowing and other types of problems caused due to spread of the disease to organs like the brain.

    CyberKnife Radiosurgery for Lung Cancer
    Before applying radiation therapy for lung cancer, oncologists will identify the size and location of lung tumor. CyberKnife radiosurgery system will utilize these characteristics of lung tumors for clearly visualizing the tumor during treatment. CyberKnife radiosurgery system is an advanced procedure which can pinpoint the exact location of the lung tumor and track the same even while it is moving due to breathing. Based upon the necessary information, CyberKnife radiosurgery system will calculate an optimal radiation delivery plan in order to deliver a safe and accurate dose of radiation for destroying the tumor. For this purpose, the CyberKnife radiosurgery delivery machine is fitted with a computer-controlled robot that moves around the patient’s body to various locations from where it can precisely deliver the required radiation.

    Undergo Best CyberKnife Radiosurgery Lung Cancer Treatment in India
    In comparison with availability of CyberKnife radiosurgery in other parts of the world, this lung cancer treatment in India is not only superior, but highly affordable at the same time. Radiation oncologists in India are highly trained and well experienced cancer specialists who are adept in handling the most advanced technologies and performing the most complex operations. An extensive network of internationally accredited hospital facilities featuring state-of-the-art technologies essentially support application of radiation therapy for lung cancer in the country. Along with this, another factor which is drawing a growing number of overseas patients for cancer treatments in India every year is the reasonable costs of procedures. In fact, patients of all nationalities, including Nigeria, will be able to save substantial amounts of their hard earned money by undergoing cancer treatments in India.
