Lung Cancer

Future Research

Lung cancer research has led to progress against cancer -- and our knowledge of lung cancer, and treating it is increasing. Researchers continue to look for better ways to prevent, detect, diagnose, and treat lung cancer.

Clinical trials (research studies) to evaluate new lung cancer treatment options are an option for many lung cancer patients. In some studies, all patients receive the new lung cancer treatment. In others, doctors compare different therapies by giving the new lung cancer treatment to one group of patients and the usual (standard) therapy to another group. Through research, doctors are exploring new and possibly more effective ways to treat lung cancer.
