  • Lung cancer is a disease characterized by uncontrolled growth of cell in tissues of the lung. If left untreated, this growth can spread beyond the lungs, even, into other parts of the body [18]. Surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy are used in the cure of lung carcinoma. In spite of that, the five-year survival rate for all stages combined is only 14% [19].The paper aims to study existing methods to detect the malignant nodules at earliest as well as suggest improvements so as to take… CONTINUE READING
