How does a lobectomy treat lung cancer?
A lobectomy is the removal of one lobe of the lung. If the cancer is limited to one part of the lung, the surgeon will perform a lobectomy.
surgical removal of a lobe from any organ of the body (as the lung or brain) Lobectomy means surgical excision of a lobe. This may refer to a lobe of the lung, a lobe of the thyroid (hemithyroidectomy), or a lobe of the brain (as in anterior temporal lobectomy). The right lung has three lobes, and the left lung has two lobes. A lobectomy removes an entire lobe of lung containing the cancer (tumor). (loh-BEK-tuh-mee)…
There was no way to treat lung cancer or any other type of cancer, sadly they just died because no hospitals and stuff had the money or the equipment to treat cancer, so there was no way for the patient to recover so there were nothing the doctors/ nursers could do so they just had to die very sadly indeed.
