What is the best treatment for lung cancer?
The best treatment for lung cancer is surgical removal. Sometimes surgery is used in combination with chemotherapy and radiation therapy but these alone are not as effective as surgery.

Does the whole lung have to be removed to treat lung cancer?
In most cases, only a portion of the lung is removed to treat lung cancer. In some situations, the entire lung must be removed and this is usually very well tolerated.
