 Lung Cancer - oncologychannel
The bottom, or base, of each lung extends down to the diaphragm, which is the major breathing-associated muscle that separates the chest from the abdominal cavity.
Lung cancer is sometimes called "bronchogenic cancer," or it may be described by its particular histologic type, that is the type of tissue that is diseased.
Lung cancer is the leading category of cancer death in men, and - since the late 1980s - it has surpassed breast cancer as the leading category of cancer death in women.

An X-ray study showed chronic bronchitis and emphysema, with post-inflammatory scarring of the left lung base.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer, and cardiac disease and disorders, the causes of the veteran's death, were not incurred in or aggravated by active service, were not proximately due to or the result of a service-connected disability, or can lung cancer or heart disease be presumed to have been incurred therein.
The earliest evidence of a lung disorder contained in the claims folder at the time of the veteran's death is January 1986 hospital records which show that the veteran was admitted with a variety of cardiac and pulmonary disorders, including pulmonary hypertension, emphysema, and superimposed bronchitis.

 Position- and Base Pair-specific Comparison of p53 Mutation Spectra in Human Tumors: Elucidation of Relationships between Organs for Cancer Etiology
Second, as previously suggested by DNA adduct studies, aromatic amines are a major risk factor for bladder cancer (15), whereas carcinogenicity of cigarette smoking for the lung appears to be based primarily on other carcinogens, such as polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons and nitroso compounds, and is strongly modulated by tumor-promoting aspects of smoking-associated toxicity (16).
Based on our analysis, for instance, the share among all mutations of the hot spot mutation CGT to TGT in codon 273 ranged from 0.4% in head and neck tumors to 10.6% in the brain.
In colon tumors, 63% of the base pair changes were reported to be G to A transitions; the G to T transversion contributed only 9% (1).

Zang and Wynder conclude that this gender difference cannot be explained by differences in base-line exposure, smoking history, or body size, but is likely due to the higher susceptibility to tobacco carcinogens of women.
The lung cancer epidemic is primarily attributable to cigarette smoking, which is responsible for at least 80% of the disease in women and 90% in men.
A recent study by Zang and Wynder confirmed earlier findings that the odds ratios for major lung cancer types are consistently higher for women than for men at every level of exposure to cigarette smoke.

 Dynamic Lung Volume Tracker and Controller
Because scanning of the lung requires several breathhold maneuvers to complete an apex-to-base due to long image acquisition times and cannot be performed in one continuous breathhold, volumetric images are highly dependent upon patient cooperation and is subject to errors caused by patient repeatability and fatigue due to hyperinflation efforts.
Prior to scanning, the desired lung inflation level at which to perform scanning is input to the software and when the desired level is reached, the expiratory path is occluded and imaging begins.
For acquisitions at multiple lung volumes, duration of scanning often exceeded an hour or more and it was initially found that appreciable condensation did indeed occur.

There is an isthmus of pulmonary tissue which extends from the right lung base across the midline behind the pericardium and then fuses with the left lung base.
Discussion Pulmonary sequestration (PS) as first described by Rektorzik in 1861 is a mass of accessory lung tissue with an anomalous arterial supply.

The base ( basis pulmonis) is broad, concave, and rests upon the convex surface of the diaphragm, which separates the right lung from the right lobe of the liver, and the left lung from the left lobe of the liver, the stomach, and the spleen.
It presents a deep concavity, the cardiac impression, which accommodates the pericardium; this is larger and deeper on the left than on the right lung, on account of the heart projecting farther to the left than to the right side of the median plane.
The right lung usually weighs about 625 gm., the left 567 gm., but much variation is met with according to the amount of blood or serous fluid they may contain.

 Tongue Cancer Answers
The oral tongue and the base of the tongue comprise the whole tongue but it is important to know that they develop from different embryonic tissue and really are somewhat dissimilar.
Like the oral tongue, the base of tongue (or posterior 1/3) can also grow several types of cancers, but again, squamous cell carcinoma is the most common and we will direct our comments with that in mind.
While it may technically feasible to surgically remove some base of tongue cancers, it is our opinion that most can and should be treated by radiotherapy.

Amphotericin is also given by "spinal tap" into the spinal fluid at the base of the brain of patients who develop valley fever meningitis, and it is used to irrigate valley fever abscesses in bone and "soft tissues".
The drainage of valley fever abscesses in soft tissues and in bones and joints, or the removal of bone infections (osteomyelitis) is also performed fairly commonly in areas where valley fever is prevalent.
Valley fever also can produce cavities in the lung - areas where the lung tissue has been completely destroyed by the valley fever infection - leaving a rounded hole in the lung that may be partly filled with fluid.

Such shunts result when non-ventilated regions of lung continue to remain perfused secondary to failure of the usual reflex vasoconstriction associated with hypoventilation.
In this patient, the decreased left lung base ventilation was thought to be secondary to an obstructing mucous plug.
The lung distal to this obstruction continued to receive blood flow, causing non-oxygenated blood to enter the systemic circulation and resulting in hypoxia.
