Medical Oncology

A medical oncologist will oversee the treatment plan for chemotherapy. Depending on the type of lung cancer and the stage, chemotherapy may be the main treatment, or it may be used in addition to surgery. Anticancer drugs are injected or given by mouth. They enter the bloodstream and flow throughout your body, which helps to fight cancers that have spread. Side effects can include diarrhea, nausea, loss of hair, rashes on hands and feet, mouth sores and fatigue. Most of these side effects disappear once treatment ends.
