Lung Cancer Treatment - Lung cancer treatment options vary according to several factors, including the cancer type (small cell or non-small cell) and stage, tumor size and location, and the patient's overall health. Surgery (e.g., wedge resection, lobectomy, pneumonectomy) may be recommended for primary tumors present in just one lung, while chemotherapy and radiation treatments are often used for more advanced cancers. Innovative therapies, such as photodynamic therapy (PDT) and others, may also be used for lung cancer treatment.
