The choice of treatment at The London Clinic depends on the type of lung cancer, how advanced the cancer is and the age and general health of the individual.  Your consultant may order some diagnostic tests to help gather more information.

The main forms of treatments

  • Surgery which can include removal of the tumour or part of a lung.
  • Radiotherapy which can include Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT), conformal, Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy or Volumetric Arc Therapy (IMRT/RapidArc) and or respiratory gated radiotherapy (radiotherapy to the chest)  or Stereotactic Radiotherapy/Radiosurgery (CyberKnife).
  • Chemotherapy.

A treatment plan involving one or a combination of any of the above treatments is individually customised and your consultant will discuss your treatment plan with you.
