Current Treatments and Research
Some current treatments for lung cancer are; surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted drug therapy, clinical trials, and palliative care. Also scientists are researching new ways to help lung cancer patients and are finding new ways to hopefully cure it in the future. They say that the best thing right now that shows the most results is clinical trials. Also they say that biopsies can help with identifying the cancer they had and which treatment would've best benefited it.
