Lung cancer treatments

There are many different lung cancer treatments including traditional treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Over recent years, treatments for those living with late stage disease have advanced tremendously. These treatments include targeted therapies and immunotherapies.

Depending on what is happening with your lung cancer, treatments may focus on getting rid of it, reducing it or limiting its progress. Everyone’s lung cancer diagnosis is different and so everyone’s treatment is too. Although your lung cancer may appear to be the same as someone else’s, your treatment and care may be different. Your doctors will consider carefully the best options for you and talk them through with you.
