Surgical resection is the traditional treatment for lung cancer. Only with a 30 to 40 cm big incision, can the tumor be removed; sometimes it even needs to remove one or two ribs. Therefore, surgical resection is of great risks, it causes big damage and lots of side effects to human body. Some lung cancer patients even lost their life because of the surgery. According to statistics from America, about 10.7% lung cancer patients died in 30 days after removing one side of the lung.
When it comes to radiotherapy and chemotherapy, they damage the immune system in that it kills not only cancer cells but also normal cells. Patients may suffer from severe side effects, like decline in leukocytes and blood platelet, frequent urination, hair losing, vomiting and etc, or even face with the threat of death in that their immunity is so low that cannot fight against cancer and other diseases.
Is surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy the only choice for lung cancer treatment? Are there other treatments for lung cancer patients? The answer is yes, definitely.
