Lung Cancer Treatment
Treatment decisions in lung cancer depend on whether SCLC or NSCLC is present. Treatment also depends on tumor stage, particularly in NSCLC. A person's general physical condition (the ability to withstand treatment procedures) is also taken into account.
The most widely used therapies for lung cancer are surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.
