Bronchioloalveolar Carcinoma of Lung
Dear OncoLink "Ask the Experts,"
One of my family members has bronchioloalveolar carcinoma of lung with distant metastases. She is going to have a surgery to remove a tumor from her leg. She would like to know what NEW treatment she can take after the surgery? What chemotherapy & radiation trials can she participate in?
Li Liu, MD, OncoLink editorial assistant, responds:
Thank you for your interest and question.
There are a few National Cancer Institute (NCI) sponsored trials available for Stage IV non-small cell lung cancer.
