WHAT IS ADENOCARCINOMA CANCER?

Adenocarcinoma cancer develops in one of the glands that line the interior of the organs. This type of cancer generally appears in the prostate, breast, colon, lung, or pancreas.

It is said that adenocarcinoma cancer can develop in different organs of the body, so far there is no list of symptoms that allows us to know if this type of cancer is the one that affects the patient because this type of cancer is asymptomatic. The symptoms that appear can affect the organ where it is and present symptoms in it, for example, breast adenocarcinoma can cause a lump or unusual growth.

Lung adenocarcinoma causes hoarseness, cough, weakness, weight loss, and exhaustion. Adenocarcinoma in the prostate may cause bladder control problems, frequent urination at night, bloody semen, and painful ejaculation. Other symptoms also occur in different parts of the body, so it is advisable to perform different tests that help detect this type of cancer, certain chemicals in the blood may also be associated with specific cancers.

Treatments for adenocarcinoma cancer depend on many factors, one of them is the site of origin of the cancer. Finally, there are many ways to treat this type of cancer, including surgery to remove the tumor, chemotherapy, radiation, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy.
