There are several types of treatment for early-stage non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). You and your healthcare team will discuss which choice is best for you based on the type and stage of lung cancer you have, symptoms, your preferences and any other health problems you may have. Lung cancer treatments continue to improve as new discoveries are being made so it is important to discuss all your possible options with your healthcare team. This fact sheet focuses on the treatment of early-stage non–small cell lung cancer. For additional information about lung cancer including treatment of advanced-stage NSCLC, see our other ATS Patient Information Series fact sheets in the ‘For More Information’ section at the end of this leaflet.
