Radiation Therapy for Lung Cancer

 

Lung cancer is a serious condition, but with a dedicated treatment team and high-quality treatment, it’s possible to treat it. Our cancer centers specialize in noninvasive radiation therapy, and we offer a number of options for treating lung cancer:

 

  • CyberKnife: This is our flagship treatment. One of the most advanced cancer treatments on the market, CyberKnife combines technological advancements from several fields of medicine to create a noninvasive, convenient, and highly-effective treatment for many forms of cancer.
  • TrueBeam: Another option for radiation therapy, TrueBeam targets low-dose radiation to destroy cancer cells and eliminate tumors.
  • TomoTherapy: TomoTherapy uses a circular radiation delivery device, allowing it to conveniently apply radiation to almost any part of the body.

 

Other Treatment Options for Lung Cancer

 

We strive to use noninvasive treatments like CyberKnife whenever possible, but we offer a variety of treatments at our cancer centers. You and your doctor may also opt for any of the following options:

 

  • Surgery: While invasive, surgery can be highly effective for treating early-stage lung cancer.
  • Chemotherapy: This method uses drugs to target fast-growing cells in the body. It can often produce unpleasant side effects, but it’s a common treatment for cancers that have spread throughout the body.
  • Targeted Therapy: This is similar to chemotherapy, but uses newer drugs that may have less intense side effects.
  • Immunotherapy: Using specialized drugs, immunotherapy stimulates the body’s immune system to attack cancer cells on its own, often providing an effective treatment.
