In brief: Multidisciplinary.

Several specialties are involved with treating a patient with lung cancer.
A pulmonologist, oncologist, surgeon, radiation oncologist. Hence, lung cancer is treated and potentially cured by early detection, surgical removal of the tumor and appropriate treatment with chemotherapy and radiation. Not all cancers can be cured but they can be treated.
