Caption

Lung cancer. Chest X-ray of a 62 year old female smoker showing a cancer (cloudy region) in the lung (dark) at right. The bones of the ribcage can be seen around the lungs. Lung cancer is a type of primary malignant tumour which is more common in men than women and is linked to cigarette smoking. There are several types of lung cancer, the most common being squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma and large cell carcinoma. Generally, it is not possible to identify the type of cancer from an X-ray alone. If the cancer is diagnosed at an early stage, all or part of the lung can be surgically removed.
