What factors influence the development of a lung cancer treatment plan?

ANSWER

Your doctors will plan your lung cancer treatment based on what you need. It will depend in part on:

Ask your doctor to explain the recommended treatment plan, including its benefits, side effects, and how it might make you feel during and after it.

  • What type of the disease you have
  • Its stage
  • Whether the cancer has spread in your body
  • The side effects the treatment may cause
  • Your age and general health
  • Your preferences and goals
