Having Sleep Apnoea Could Make Lung Cancer More Deadly, Study Finds

sleep apnoeaSleep apnoea is a condition in which the tissues in the throat relax and narrow during sleep interrupting the normal breathing process.  New research indicates that sleep apnoea may cause the faster growth of lung cancer tumors.

Key takeaways:

·         Lung cancer proves to be more deadly in adults who suffer from obstructive sleep apnoea.

·         Pauses in breathing due to sleep apnoea leads to lack of sufficient oxygen, making tumors grow rapidly.

·         Increased speed of cancer cell growth and replication fuel the spread of tumors in the body, a process called metastasis.

A lack of air during a night's rest makes tumours grow quicker by releasing exosomes - which play a key role in tumour growth, scientists claim.
