Archaic and Capacious-Non Small Cell Carcinoma Lung
Published: July 07, 2022
Non small cell carcinoma lung is a pulmonary epithelial carcinoma disparate from small cell carcinoma lung. Majority (85%) of pulmonary malignancies are comprised of non small cell carcinomas.
Non small cell carcinoma is comprised of adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma or large cell carcinoma. Infrequently, subtypes such as pleomorphic carcinoma, carcinoid tumour, salivary gland carcinoma, unclassified carcinoma or uncommon, histological variants as mixed cell subtype may emerge [1, 2].
