Benefits of Radiation Therapy for Lung Cancer

Radiation therapy is a proven treatment option with a low risk of complications


Understanding Lung Cancer

Early detection and effective treatment

Lung cancer is a serious disease that affects millions of people worldwide. Approximately 1 in 16 people in the United States will be diagnosed with lung cancer in their lifetime. However, thanks to advancements in early detection and treatment, the number of lung cancer deaths continues to decrease. Screening for lung cancer with a low dose CT scan is approved yearly for patients who qualify, and helps to reduce the risk of death from lung cancer.

Lung cancer occurs when abnormal cells in one or both lungs begin to grow uncontrollably. These abnormal cells do not carry out the normal functions of healthy lung cells, and can form tumors that interfere with the lung's ability to provide oxygen to the body.

Once lung cancer is diagnosed, your cancer care team will work with you to determine the best course of treatment. This may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or a combination of treatments. Radiation therapy is a well-established and effective treatment option that has been shown to have a low risk of complications.

It is important to catch and treat lung cancer in its early stages, as early diagnosis and treatment can greatly improve the chances of successful outcomes. Your cancer care team will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that takes into account the specific characteristics of your lung cancer, as well as your overall health and preferences.
