In brief: Depends...

...On the kind of cancer and the stage.
Small cell cancer is typically treated with chemotherapy plus/minus radiation. Non small cell may be treated with surgery, radiation, or chemo, be it separately or in combination. If this is about you or a relative, the treating oncologist should go over the treatment plan that applies to the specific situation.
