Is there a surgery for lung carcinoma?

If so, what are the options and how can you know the level of the disease?

They will do an x ray first, then a CAT scan then an MRI. If anything shows up they will do a biopsy first to find out what kind of tumor it is and if it's a metastatic type. Then they will review the options with you. Either Radiation, Chemotherapy or a resection of the tumor. They will do the least invasive stuff they can first. If it shrinks with the radiation or chemo then they reevaluate. If neither of those work they will simply take it out(resect it). The Pulmonologists, Radiologists, Oncologists and Thoracic Surgeons that are involved in your case will keep you up to date all the time. They all deal with this all the time and they know a lot about it. Trust them, they will do every thing in their power to help.

what is the difference in carcinoma of the lung when it is a primary tumor and when it is a secondary tumor?

"Buddha" is correct. If the malignancy is metastatic to the lung, it must be stage IV advanced disease for whichever of the many possible primary cancers it may be.
A primary lung carcinoma might be resected - that is the best chance for long term disease control in most non-small cell lung carcinomas. Of course a small cell primary lung carcinoma is an entirely different story. It sure would help us to know the histopathologic diagnosis - what type of cancer this is on microscopic pathology examination of the biopsy specimen.  (+ info)
