Treatment Options

Various approaches are used to treat lung cancer. Which ones are appropriate for you depends on a number of factors, including your type of lung cancer—either non-small cell or small cell—and the cancer’s stage. Non-small cell lung cancers are usually treated with surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, targeted therapy or a combination of these therapies. Small cell lung cancers are typically treated with radiation and chemotherapy.

Treatments for lung cancer include:



Interventional pulmonology

Radiation therapy

Targeted therapy



The early symptoms of lung cancer may be a slight cough or shortness of breath, depending on which part of the lung is affected. As the cancer develops, these symptoms may become more severe or intense. Like many other types of cancer, lung cancer may also cause systemic symptoms, like loss of appetite or general fatigue.

Some common symptoms of lung cancer include:

Cough that produces blood.

Swelling in the face or neck.

Changes in the appearance of fingers, called finger clubbing.

Lung infections such as bronchitis or pneumonia that won't go away.

Shortness of breath that comes on suddenly and occurs during everyday activities.

A new cough that is persistent or worsens, or a change in an existing chronic cough.

Pain in the chest, back or shoulders that worsens during coughing, laughing or deep breathing.

Pain in the chest, back or shoulders that worsens during coughing, laughing or deep breathing.

Risk factors

Lung cancer is caused when mutated cells in the lungs grow out of control, forming a tumor. In many cases, these altered cells die or are attacked by the immune system. But some cells escape the immune system and grow out of control, forming a tumor in the lung.

Risk factors for lung cancer include:


Lung cancers are diagnosed in people over age 65, and most people are older than 45.

Industrial or workplace exposures: Inhaling chemicals or minerals, such as asbestos, arsenic, chromium, nickel, soot or tar may, over time, increase a person’s lung cancer risks.

Exposure to asbestos or other pollutants

Genetics may predispose certain people to lung cancer.

Exposure to radon: Radon is a colorless, scent-less radioactive gas that is found in some houses and is a leading cause of lung cancer.
