Treatments

Treatment of lung cancer usually involves surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy. The best treatment depends upon the overall health of the patient, location and spread of the cancer. The treatment also depends upon whether it is a small cell lung cancer (SCLC) or non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Surgical treatment of SCLC is usually not recommended since these cancers are less likely to be localized and have higher propensity to spread. However, chemotherapy and radiation therapy can be used for both types of cancers.

Several other treatments like photodynamic therapy, radiofrequency ablation, use of anti-angiogenesis drugs are also helpful. The prognosis of lung cancer is poor as compared to other cancers.
