Treatment Options for Lung Cancer - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: You or someone you care about may have been diagnosed with lung cancer. This video will help you understand some of the available treatment options. Lung cancer is a disease in which cancer cells form in lung tissues. The two main types of lung cancer are non-small cell lung cancer and small cell lung cancer. Non-small cell lung cancer has several treatment options. Surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, laser therapy, photodynamic therapy, cryotherapy, electrocautery, and watchful waiting. There are several types of surgery depending on the size and location of your tumor and how well your lungs are working. During one type of surgery called wedge resection surgery, a small piece of a lung is removed. In another type of surgery called a lobectomy, a larger piece of the lung, called a lobe is removed. During a pneumonectomy, an entire lung is removed. And in a sleeve resection, your doctor may remove a part of your bronchus if cancer is in your airway. Another treatment option is radiation therapy. It uses radiation to kill cancer cells or stop them from growing. External radiation therapy uses a machine that aims radiation at the cancer from outside the body. Internal radiation therapy uses a substance that gives off radiation. The substance is put inside the body near the cancer. Chemotherapy fights cancer by using drugs. These drugs may treat the whole body or they may treat one area. Targeted therapy uses drugs that target specific cancer cells. These drugs prevent the cancer cells from growing and dividing. Since these drugs mainly affect the cancer cells, there's less damage to your normal cells. Immuno-oncology, also known as immunotherapy, helps your immune system fight cancer. Cancer can sometimes hide from the immune cells that attack them. For example, cancer and immune cells may have proteins called checkpoint proteins. When they attach, attack from other immune cells is stopped. Some immunotherapy drugs for lung cancer block the checkpoint proteins from attaching to each other. As a result, the immune cell can attack and destroy the cancer cell. In laser therapy, an intense beam of light burns cancer tissue. Photodynamic therapy uses a light activated drug. Once the drug enters the body, it collects in cancer cells. Then, fiberoptic tubes are put into the body near the tumor. Laser light is sent through tubes. The light activates the drug. The activated drug then kills cancer cells. During cryotherapy, cancer tissue is frozen and destroyed. In electrocautery, a heated instrument destroys cancer tissue by burning it. And lastly, watchful waiting is done in certain cases of non-small cell lung cancer. Your doctor closely monitors your condition until symptoms appear or change. The main treatment options for small cell lung cancer are two of the same ones used to treat non-small cell lung cancer: chemotherapy and radiation therapy. For either type of lung cancer, your doctor may prescribe a combination of treatments. If you have questions about lung cancer or any medicafions you have been prescribed, talk to your doctor. It is important to take your medications as directed and report any side effects you have.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Medical Legal Art wins our firm's highest accolades for professionalism and exhibit quality. In fact, many of the doctors I work with request color copies of your outstanding artwork to show to patients during the informed consent process."

Jeanne Dolan, BSRN, AlNC

Golden Valley, MN

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."
