What If I Am Diagnosed?
Lung cancer is a complex disease and so is its treatment. We offer useful information about lung cancer treatment and your health care team will recommend treatment options, but no one is more qualified than you are to make decisions about your quality of life and your future. Seek information and advice, and then do what is right for you.
