A middle-aged man who does not smoke or drink suddenly had a lump in his chest. He never suspected that he was suffering from cancer. At first he could not find the cause of the disease after seeking medical treatment. Later, it was confirmed that it was terminal lung cancer, and surgery was no longer possible. The tumor grew more rapidly.

Fortunately, he was later transferred to the Prince of Wales Hospital for treatment. After consultation with the multiple lung cancer team of the New Territories East Hospital, he believed that surgery could be performed to improve his condition and enable him to successfully fight cancer. Although his lung function declined after the operation, he can still live as usual. .


The Lung Cancer Team of the New Territories East Hospital Cluster is led by Professor Mo Shujin, Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Department of Surgery, Chinese University, and has recently won the Hospital Authority Outstanding Team Award.

The team was established in 2006 and consists of 8 to 10 doctors from different specialties.

Every month, there will be meetings on 1 to 2 days, and the authorities of all disciplines gather to discuss the difficult cases of 10 to 20 lung cancer patients, hoping to design a personalized treatment plan.

Mr. Chen, who is about 50 years old, who does not smoke or drink, is one of the successful cases. Five years ago, he found a small lump in his left chest and turned to several private doctors for treatment. In the end, it was confirmed that it was terminal lung cancer and he said he could not undergo surgery. .

In just a few stars, his tumor has increased to more than 10 cm. One of the team members, Dr. Wu Shiheng, the honorary consultant of the Prince of Wales Hospital, described it as "like a big football." Later, after examination and consultation by the multiple lung cancer team of the New Territories East Hospital It is believed that the cancer cells show no signs of spreading.

In the treatment process, the team used single port lung cancer surgery, combined operating room lung cancer surgery and non-invasive microwave ablation.

Among them, the non-invasive microwave ablation procedure will not cause stab wounds. The ablation catheter is used to accurately reach the tumor center through the electromagnetic navigation bronchoscope, and the computer sketch 3D location is determined to cover the entire tumor, and the operation is completed in about an hour.

Dr. Wu Shiheng pointed out that currently only Granville Hospital and the Royal St. Bartholomew Hospital in London have this technology in the world.

After 5 years of treatment, Mr. Chen's lung function can still be preserved at 55-60%, while the average daily life only needs to be 40-50% football, so it is unfortunately fortunate.

Mo Shujin pointed out that more than 10 years ago, the only way to treat lung cancer was chemotherapy, and patients generally only had more than 10 months of life left.

However, with the advancement of medical technology, there are now more than 3 years of survival time, and many patients can still survive 5 years later. He expects that the survival time and probability of patients will gradually increase in the near future.
