What is lung cancer surgery?
Lung cancer begins in the cells of the lung. It can be either small cell lung cancer or non-small cell lung cancer. Both types behave differently and need to be treated accordingly. Thus, there can be different types of treatment options for lung cancer based on the type, stage, and size of cancer. Surgery is the preferred treatment option for patients with early-stage non small cell lung cancer.
What are the types of lung cancer treatment?
The board of oncologists will evaluate each case separately and suggest treatment based on the patient’s health condition and cancer characteristics. They may recommend:
- Surgery: This can involve pneumonectomy (removal of a lung), lobectomy (removal of a lobe), removal of lymph nodes, etc. The procedure is chosen based on the patient’s health condition and the nature of cancer.
- Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy uses special drugs given intravenously to patients. The drugs can kill cancerous cells.
- Radiation therapy: Cancer cells are targeted and killed through high beams of radiation. The process can occur even during surgery to effectively eliminate any cancerous cells.
