Lung cancer treatment options

Lung cancer develops from the lung cells. It ranks first by prevalence and mortality among men.

Lung cancer is divided into four stages. Commonly cancer is detected when the stage 3 has already developed. Since the stage when the cancer is diagnosed often determines the 5-year survival for patients, early diagnostics is prevalent to the successful cure of lung cancer.

Diagnostics for lung cancer

According to NCCN (National Comprehensive Cancer Network), annual LDCT (Lung cancer screening with low dose computed tomography) examination reduces the risk of death from lung cancer by 20%. Chest X-ray, comparing to the LDCT, does not allow to detect early stages of cancer when there is still a high probability of the successful outcome.

Among diagnostics are also used:

  • Pulmonary function test;
  • Bronchoscopy;
  • FDG PET/CT.

Treatment for lung cancer

There are three typical approaches to the treatment of cancer. These are surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy in different combinations.

Advanced treatments for lung cancer:

  • VATS - video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery, which takes place in the early stages of lung cancer, is proven to reduce mortality compared with open lobectomy (NCCN);
  • In addition to standard methods of radiation therapy (CT-planned 3D-CRT), several certified clinics apply advanced methods - 4D-CT and/or PET/CT simulation, IMRT/VMAT, IGRT, motion management, proton therapy.
