SPECIALIZED CANCER TREATMENT
Radiation therapy is a highly precise and individualized process that involves multiple steps to create a treatment plan that is tailored to the patient's specific cancer and anatomy. At Saint Lucie Radiation Oncology, our doctor uses the most effective course of treatment to make sure you get the best outcome.
Radiation can be used before lung cancer surgery to shrink the tumor or after surgery to kill any cancer cells left in the lungs. Sometimes external radiation is used as the main type of lung cancer treatment. This is often the case for people who may not be healthy enough to have surgery or whose cancer has spread too far to have surgery. Radiation therapy for lung cancer also can be used to relieve symptoms caused by the cancer.
