Yes !!!: Lung cancer is curable when found early. There are two broad categories of lung cancer; small cell and non small cell. Adenocarcinoma is the most common form of non smal cell lung cancer. The prognosis of non small cell lung cancer is impacted more by the stage than it is by the cell type. Adenocarcinoma can be cured. In early stages, only surgery may be required.
