Grochola already had health problems

This is not the first cancer diagnosis in her life. In 2019, the writer confessed that three decades earlier (she was about 30 years old at the time) she was diagnosed with advanced cancer.

“I was so scared I don’t remember feeling anything. I don’t remember much at all. I think I fainted on the street. I remember some people and the car they used to give me a lift home… […] But the worst time is the period between the collection of specimens for examination and the final confirmation of the diagnosis – she said in an interview with Agata Domańska from the Świat Zdrowia website.

The writer mentioned that the doctors deemed her tumor inoperable. “I was sitting at the table, opposite me, seven doctors who convinced me that surgery at this stage was not worth doing, it was not advisable, it was too late. And I told them that I had to operate, that time was running out. that there are other forms of therapy, but I did not accept it and replied that we would talk about it after the operation. Fortunately, I had a friend in this hospital, a doctor. He was the one who convinced the others to operate on me, even if it was a placebo operation” — she told.

Katarzyna Grochola was then operated on and recovered. The writer did not specify what kind of cancer she was struggling with. When asked if she cares more about herself after the illness, she replied: “I’m not a good example because I’m a convert convert and I do things I shouldn’t do, even if I smoke, which doesn’t sound good when talking to someone who has had cancer… But I’m limiting the number of cigarettes, so that’s something…”.

Lung cancer is the most common malignancy. In Poland, it is diagnosed in over 22,000 people each year. people.

As with other cancers, there is no 100% certainty as to what causes lung cancer to develop. There are many indications that exposure to tobacco smoke, especially active smoking, has an impact. In non-smokers, genetic factors, passive smoking, as well as environmental factors, such as air pollution, may come into play.

Among the most characteristic lung cancer symptoms are mentioned:

  1. chronic or recurrent cough,

  2. recurrent pneumonia,

  3. shortness of breath,

  4. hoarseness,

  5. hemoptysis.

However, these symptoms usually appear when the cancer is already advanced. Initially, the disease may be asymptomatic or the symptoms are confusing, characteristic of many diseases.

The treatment of lung cancer depends on many factors, including: the location of the tumor, the stage of the disease and the condition of the patient. If the tumor is operable, chemotherapy is often used before surgery. If surgery is not possible, chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy and symptomatic treatment are usually recommended.
