|Stage 2 lung cancer|
During the second stage of lungs cancer, the disease has spread to lymph nodes and all other vital parts of the body. Hence the treatment is a little bit difficult, but still there are chances of survival for the patient. The degree to which it has spread to all other lymph nodes determines the extent of the disease and the success of treatment. The disease might or mightn't have spread to main bronchus. If it hasn't spread to main bronchus, the treatment would more likely be successful and if it has spread over them, the treatment is less likely to end in success.
The size of the tumor also determines the success rate of the treatment. As everyone knows it very well, the most important causes for lungs cancer are smoking and tobacco consumption. If you are a chain smoker, the chances that your disease might have spread to almost all your vital organs before it is discovered are very high. On the other hand, if you aren't a smoker, your chances of escaping the capital punishment because of the cancer are very high! So if you are a smoker, it is the right time to quit it completely.
