Patients with a History of Lymphoma Can Benefit From Early Detection of Lung Cancer and Resection Surgery

A new study found out that patients with a history of Lymphoma can survive lung cancer through early detection and resection surgery. When lung cancer is identified early, the survival rates are high.

Although there have been advances in radiotherapy and chemotherapy, which have improved survival rates in patients with Lymphoma, those who’ve survived are still at risk of secondary cancer.

Secondary cancer causes more deaths in lymphoma survivors and is the most commonly diagnosed lung cancer solid tumor among the survivors.

Lung cancer risk is a common problem in patients with Lymphoma, but the treatment and prognosis of the patients is yet to be established. That’s why scientists conducted a multi-center study to look at patients who’d been treated for Lymphoma but later developed non-small cell lung cancer.

The study confirmed that lymphoma survivors should be considered for lung cancer surgical resection as a curative option.

Although other factors such as performance and nutritional status can affect the patient’s survival, resection surgery for lung cancer should not be avoided based on their previous history of Lymphoma.

In the study, early detection and radical lung cancer resection were the most significant survival factors. It was suggested that survivors of Lymphoma should be screened regularly for lung cancer so that early treatment would be facilitated to lower the mortality risk. Lymphoma survivors should be considered as high risk for lung cancer if they are above 55 years or have a history of smoking.

The researchers also stressed that physicians should promote for lymphoma survivors close and prolonged follow up while keeping in mind the fact that the latency time between lymphoma diagnosis and lung cancer could take more than ten years. This grace period can help them diagnose lung cancer early and improve survival significantly.

Having active Lymphoma impacts the overall survival of a patient, although it’s not significant in the likelihood that the patient will survive lung cancer. Those with active Lymphoma may die from other diseases and not from lung cancer recurrence. But they can achieve improved survival after undergoing lung resection.

Lymphoma survivors eligible for resection surgery should be selected based on the stage of lung cancer, their cardio-respiratory function, and if their Lymphoma can be treated.
