Há poucos anos a compreensão da medicina sobre o câncer de pulmão 🫁 evoluiu drasticamente: progredimos de uma simples classificação histológica para uma compressão genética e molecular. Inicialmente, dividíamos a moléstia em tumores de pequenas células, e não pequenas células...
... sendo este último subdividido em mais 03 grupos: adenocarcinoma, carcinoma escamoso e carcinoma de grandes células.
O que sabemos atualmente é que os adenocarcinomas de pulmão se originam dos pneumócitos (células importantes dos alvéolos pulmonares); os escamosos das células basais e os neuroendócrinos (pequenas células) das células com o mesmo nome.

Year 2 of my #PhD when I was atvthe peak of my #PhysicalActivity and #fitness! This was the time when anything felt acheivable 😀
Loved my #hair that I had grown since the start of my PhD! This was #onceinalifetime thing for me to do! I donated 12’ to @locksoflove #cancersurvivor
Then the #science #reality and #depression hit me! It was the most unimaginable experience! It’s easy to brush off when other people say what depression entails, but the #experience was very profound and physically devastating! I noticed the smallest things around me differently!
At the end of year 5, with the help of many #people I beat the #depression! Ofcourse I had occasional flairs from that #experience. But the #rockbottom was something else! In a way I’m #glad I experienced it ad I truly cared about my PhD #research. @OpenAcademics @AcademicChatter

THREAD 1/12 Patients with #cancer are being advised to #cocoon due to #COVID-19. This means they cannot shop for food. If you are caring for someone on cancer treatment including #Chemotherapy please be mindful that their nutritional needs are different to healthy people.
2/12 Patients with cancer can lose large amounts of muscle mass very quickly. Severe muscle loss (sarcopenia) affects 40% or more of patients with cancer. This causes poorer tolerance to chemotherapy. To slow muscle loss it is important that patients eat enough #protein.
3/12 #Poorappetite is common in patients with cancer - about 50% experience this. This means they do not feel hungry and when they eat, they often feel full very quickly. Little amounts of food and often are key to improving intake – small nourishing meals & snacks.

There is a glitch in this: the premise ignores how ineffective and inefficient employer provided #healthcare is in the U.S. model. California needs #SinglePayer / #MedicareForAll to have better #health outcomes.
having the boss pay for #healthcare is absurdly expensive

it's something that @TheDemocrats like to do to our folly

I was probably 5 or 6 years old when I first came across the reality of death. My aunt (mother’s elder sister) came to visit for the first time in my memory. Married to struggling artists the sisters, thick as thieves in their childhood, hardly met now #livingwithcancer #Cancer
I was too young to know at that time but she was dying. And she was in Delhi in the hope of delaying the eventuality. Mother of a young girl with special needs, she would, over the next few years, try everything she could to live. #livingwithcancer #Cancer #CancerAwareness
It’s at this time that I first heard how my grandfather — a man whose life, work and love for arts I had heard a lot about — died. Of #cancer in the colon in his late fifties. #livingwithcancer #CancerAwareness

#cancersurvivor #cancer talk looks today at the final part of the cancer experience when the battle is lost. Again this may bother some folks but I think it's important information to consider. ACS provides some information especially for caregivers
The signs of death being near can be different for each person. No one can really predict what may happen at the end of life, how long the final stage of life will last, or when death will actually happen.
Sometimes death comes quickly due to an unexpected event or problem. Other times the dying process moves slowly and the patient seems to linger.

In late-August of 2010, my dear first-cousin was diagnosed with inoperable, non-curable, small-cell lung #cancer. He and I were raised like #siblings and cared for one another as brother and sister, a very close-knit family.
My #cousin was an amazing man, husband, and father to twin boys; who were only 14 when he died in September 2017. He died at his home, surrounded by his family and friends…just how he’d wished.
Of course, he only had these wishes after his experiences spending extended periods of time in clinics, hospitals, and laboratories. Blood draws, lung scans, injections, medications, #chemotherapy, hospitalizations, emergency room visits from all the awful side-effects of his...
