What is cancer alveoli?
- cancer alveoli
Alveoli, tiny air sacs at the end of the bronchioles (tiny branches of air tubes) in the lungs. The alveoli are where the lungs and the bloodstream exchange carbon dioxide and oxygen. Carbon dioxide in the blood passes into the lungs through the alveoli. Oxygen in the lungs passes through the alveoli into the blood. Cancer is a term for diseases in which abnormal cells divide without control and can invade nearby tissues. Cancer cells can also spread to other parts of the body through the blood and lymph systems. There are several main types of cancer. Carcinoma is a cancer that begins in the skin or in tissues that line or cover internal organs. Sarcoma is a cancer that begins in bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, blood vessels, or other connective or supportive tissue. Leukemia is a cancer that starts in blood-forming tissue such as the bone marrow, and causes large numbers of abnormal blood cells to be produced and enter the blood. Lymphoma and multiple myeloma are cancers that begin in the cells of the immune system. Central nervous system cancers are cancers that begin in the tissues of the brain and spinal cord. Also called malignancy.
- It appears that, however, this is only part of the equation. Lung cancer is also dangerous, as is cancer in any other part of the body, because the cancer can spread to other organs and tissues in the body, causing them to operate less effectively. When this happens, a range of serious symptoms can appear, plus the possible death of the person who is afflicted by the cancer. Lung, one of a pair of organs in the chest that supplies the body with oxygen, and removes carbon dioxide from the body. Lung cancer, cancer that forms in tissues of the lung, usually in the cells lining air passages. The two main types are small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. These types are diagnosed based on how the cells look under a microscope.
- Finally, it`s been discovered that, adenocarcinoma: Cancer that begins in the cells that line the alveoli and make substances such as mucus. Adenocarcinoma, cancer that begins in cells that line certain internal organs and that have gland-like (secretory) properties. Mucus is a thick, slippery fluid made by the membranes that line certain organs of the body, including the nose, mouth, throat, and vagina.
