NCCN Guidelines for Patients
: Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
Part 7: Tools
Surgery or radiation therapy is used to cure stage I cancer.
Treatment for stage II and III cancers depends on if the tumor is invasive.
Chemoradiation is used to cure lung cancers that are too invasive or spread too far within the chest.
Widespread lung cancers can be treated with chemotherapy, targeted therapy, or both.
A survivorship care plan should be followed after lung cancer has been cured.
