Frequently Asked Questions

The curability of thoracic cancer depends on various factors, including the stage of lung cancer. Small, early-stage lung cancer can have a cure rate of 80% to 90%. However, as the cancer progresses, affects lymph nodes, and spreads to other parts of the body, the chances of a complete cure decrease.
Lung cancer predominantly occurs in older individuals, with the majority of diagnoses made in people aged 65 or older. Additionally, lung cancer can affect individuals of any age, and there have been cases of younger individuals being diagnosed with the disease.
The rate of lung cancer growth can vary among different individuals. Generally, lung cancer is considered an aggressive cancer that has the potential to spread quickly if left untreated or undetected.
The most crucial preventive measure for lung cancer is to avoid smoking altogether or quit if you are a smoker. It is important to avoid exposure to secondhand smoke, eliminate smoking in your home and car, and minimise exposure to other known risk factors such as environmental pollutants.
No, surgery is not the sole treatment option for thoracic cancer. Depending on the type and stage of cancer, other treatment modalities like chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, and targeted therapy may also be utilized. The treatment approach is determined based on individual patient factors and a multidisciplinary assessment.
