Sanjay Dutt Winning His Battle Over With Lung Cancer- Emerging As A Warrior

This year has been tough for many people and harsh in different ways. We heard the news of Bollywood actors dying from Sushant Singh Rajpoot's suicide to Rishi Kapoor and  Irfan Khan's sudden death from health problems which left the audience very heartbroken.
 After all that there surfaced news about Sanjay Dutt's cancer which stirred the media and the audience. It was reported that he was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and left from Mumbai to the United States on August 11, stating as a much-needed break for his health. But later it was confirmed that he flew to the United States for his cancer treatment after the doctors in Mumbai decided that he needed urgent treatment for his advanced lung cancer.

Sanjay Dutt’s most recent message

Recently the actor took to social media on the occasion of his twin's birthday that he has successfully defeated cancer and is recovering well. He was not present at the birthday celebration due to his ongoing treatment and virtually attended the occasion on a video call. He further said that this cancer battle has been very tough for his family as can be expected because stage 4 lung cancer is an advanced stage and there is a narrow window of good prognosis. But he declared that he has gifted the best to his children on the occasion of their birthday that is- the health and well-being of their family.

In his message, he thanked his family and friends for the emotional support they provided and also his fans who wished his well being. He also thanked the doctors and nursing staff who took care of him in his most critical condition.

Disease background

Lung cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in human beings followed by breast, prostate, and brain cancer. All these cancers have their own causes to occur but genetic predisposition is a common cause among them. Lung cancer along with genetic causes has many other risk factors, the most common risk factor is Smoking and others being passive smoking and exposure to harmful gases.

The symptoms of lung cancer are very specific to the disease, the most common is cough and others are wheezing, blood coughed up in sputum, chest pain, and breathing problems. All these symptoms are associated with weight loss which was very prominently seen in the actor while his picture was shared on social media. 

There are different stages reflecting the severity of disease from stage 1 to stage 4. Stage 1 being the least severe to stage 4 being the most severe one. Family history plays an important role as we all know Sanjay Datt’s mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and died of the same cause. 
A note to take home

No matter how severe the problem, his recovery gives us hope that even the most difficult situations can be defeated with the love and support of our family, family, and the people who support us and pray for us.
