Potentially: Treatment and/or cure depends largely on stage and associated treatments at a given stage. For best results, lung cancer should be treated by a multi-discipline thoracic oncology program. Our best wishes to you in the fight against cancer.

Rarely: Small, peripheral, found very early and removed. Most are not like that however!

Usually not: If found very early, it can be surgically removed. However, I am of the opinion that even if it's surgically removed, there are still cancer cells somewhere in the body. I am sure not all physicians subscribe to this belief, but that's my opinion.
