Caption: Lung cancer. Coloured chest X-ray showing a large malignant tumour in the right lung (left of image). This is a squamous cell carcinoma - the most common type of lung cancer. Lung cancer is a very common primary cancer; it is more common in men than women and has a clear association with cigarette smoking. Although X-ray examination is an effective means of detecting cancer, a tissue sample is needed to identify which kind of tumour is present. Squamous cell carcinoma usually only occurs on skin. In smokers, however, the tissue lining the lungs' airways changes into a skin-like epithelium due to chronic irritation by smoke.
