Case description

There is tremendous progress in lung cancer treatment including personalised treatment options. The targeted therapy uses a specific inhibitor against specific cancer genes, which provides higher response and improved survival with less toxicity. Immunotherapy also is a very important cancer treatment which strengthen the patient's immune system to attack and destroy cancer cells. Despite this huge progress still to cure lung cancer the early diagnosis and the surgical resection is the best treatment.
