Caring for a client with bronchogenic carcinoma takes conscious effort; there are some diagnosis tips to consider when dealing with this situation, which includes; maintaining a patent airway, alleviate any form of anxiety by explaining all procedures involved (psychological well-being matters too) amidst others. Thus, the highest priority and topmost concern of all is to maintain a patent airway based on the fact that the condition of the client may most likely compromise the airway; as such, ineffective airway clearance may lead to toxic secretion or obstruction by tumor.

To avoid problems, this must be monitored at all times as topmost priority. To the best of my knowledge, this nursing intervention has successfully saved the lives of many at the same time, saved the jobs of many nurses. It is quite important to take note of these priorities while taking care of a bronchogenic carcinoma patient.

The one thing that the nurse has to pay attention to is to collect the urine specimen to ensure that the urine will be free from creatinine. This is considered to be a subtype of lung cancer. There was a time when this was used to describe a type of lung cancer that started out in the bronchioles, which are the passageway to the lungs.

An X-Ray will not be enough to determine if a person has lung cancer. It is most likely that a person would need to undergo a CT scan. There may be some small lesions that will appear to show the presence of cancer. The sputum may also be considered as a specimen and checked under a microscope.
