Hi everyone,

Can anyone fill me in on the chemo protocols for lung cancer? Or are there are range of cocktails out there dependent on the type of lung cancer it is. I was tentatively diagnosed with lung cancer but am awaiting to find out what kind it is.

Thanks,
Lance

Hey Lance,
Sorry for your troubles there are more than one type of lung cancer and more than one protocol for each.

Thanks Denise,

I figured that was the case. This is my third cancer and I am trying to get the lay of the land as quickly as possible.

Cheers, Lance

Lance,

I hope your tentative turns out to be a negative. You can have different kinds of lung cancer at the same time. I had three different kinds. As for the treatment, it's true-there are different kinds of treatments. I had a list of questions for my oncologist the first time I met him. If you go to Lance Armstrong's site, there's a list of questions to help you.
