Unhappy Lung Cancer

I just found out that a relative of mine got diagnosed with lung cancer?
Is it treatable?

Lung cancer is hard to control with current treatments.

The choice of treatment depends mainly on the type of lung cancer and its stage. People with lung cancer may have surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, or a combination of treatments.

People with limited stage small cell lung cancer usually have radiation therapy and chemotherapy. For a very small lung tumor, a person may have surgery and chemotherapy. Most people with extensive stage small cell lung cancer are treated with chemotherapy only.

People with non-small cell lung cancer may have surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or a combination of treatments. The treatment choices are different for each stage. Some people with advanced cancer receive targeted therapy.

Cancer treatment is either local therapy or systemic therapy:

Local therapy: Surgery and radiation therapy are local therapies. They remove or destroy cancer in the chest. When lung cancer has spread to other parts of the body, local therapy may be used to control the disease in those specific areas. For example, lung cancer that spreads to the brain may be controlled with radiation therapy to the head.

Systemic therapy: Chemotherapy and targeted therapy are systemic therapies. The drugs enter the bloodstream and destroy or control cancer throughout the body.


For most patients with non-small cell lung cancer or small cell lung cancer, current treatments do not cure the cancer.

did he smoke alot?
some cancers are cured ith chemotherapy, if the cancer multiplies alot it is easy to cure with chemo
if not then it is difficult
and cancer cells are like grape, they fall off and go into the blood stream and multiply other places...
