In brief: Is the lung cancer

Gone or did you just fnd out? Do you want to know your prognosis or have you and your care team avoided it? If your libido is intact and you and your partner is interested, absolutely no hazard to sex.
If under treatment, you may need to ask your medical oncologist about blood counts and platelets. If xrt, no problems, if post op, ask your surgeon.
