Is Stage 1 lung cancer curable?

Best Answers

Surgery may be performed for those with stage 1, stage 2 and stage 3A non-small cell lung cancer. In a large study, among people with stage 1A lung cancer, 16 percent had a recurrence in the first five years, with the risk of recurrence after five years being 4.8 percent. read more

Stage I non-small cell lung cancer is located only in one lung and has not spread to nearby lymph nodes or outside of the chest. For patients diagnosed at this early stage, surgery is the treatment of choice traditionally, however, many doctors now recommend a multi-modality approach in which two or more types of treatment are combined. read more

Cancer that is limited in the lungs and has only spread to one other site (such as the brain) is not common, but it can sometimes be treated (and even potentially cured) with surgery and/or radiation therapy to treat the area of cancer spread, followed by treatment of the cancer in the lung. read more

If you just do a Google search and type in 'smoking' or 'lung cancer', you will be barraged with never ending facts and numbers, like how one in every three Americans is affected by lung disease and how COPD is the third leading cause of death and if you get lung cancer the odds are 95% that you will die.
