New Research in Lung Cancer Treatment
For most cancer patients, the real danger isn’t the original tumor but the risk of their primary cancer metastasizing. When cancer spreads beyond the primary site, it becomes more difficult to treat. Now, promising new research in lung cancer treatment is bringing oncologists closer to controlling the spread of some kinds of cancer.
Watch this video to learn about a gene researchers have uncovered that appears to be linked to the metastasis of lung cancer, melanoma, and cervical cancer. By isolating this gene and researching how it may encourage cancer to spread, doctors may be able to develop techniques to contain cancer at its original site, making it easier to treat.
