What role does radiation play in lung cancer care?
Radiation therapy for lung cancer also can be used to relieve symptoms caused by the cancer , such as pain, bleeding or blockage of airways by the tumor. Sometimes patients with small cell lung cancer (SCLC) will get radiation to the brain. This helps to lower the chances of the lung cancer spreading to the brain, which is common in SCLC.
