Is there an herbal cure for lung cancer?

Not aware of one. Not that anyone is aware of! even though one may one day be found, be very carefull about what anyone is pushing as a cure! besides the financial risk there is also a health risk and interaction with other medications you may be on when you take any herbs of potions not reviewed or approved by the fda. At the very least notify your doctor when you are taking anything other than prescribed.
Herb for cancer. Herbs properly used can help preserve health but never rely on it as treatment for severe problems. Herbs or oriental medicine which i also practice, are never known to treat anything severe that give important symptoms, even less in dealing with cancer. Lung cancer is so severe and such a rapidly evolving problem that no one should try to add herbs to the treatment regimen.
No. Although herbal and homepathic medicine may help with some of the symptoms of the disease and the treatment, there is no evidence to support a herbal cure for lung cancer. The standard of care therapy for best chance of cure for stage i and ii lung cancer is surgery, with a role for chemotherapy for stages ii-iv and radiation for stage iii and possibly IV (as standard of care).

It is up to him. I would suggest him to discuss with his oncologist. Yes, chemo can give side effects most commonly fatigue etc- but it will be able to increase survival and able to relief the symptoms like pain etc. On average survival for stage IV lung cancer is 15 months- on chemo. Without chemo- it will be only several weeks, few months. Please discuss with his oncologist- re treatment options. Read more...

No. I've been in medicine for forty years and there has never been a cure of any incurable cancer through any of the quack remedies -- despite their outrageous lies. NIH research piranhas and heads of governments die of cancer like everyone else. Any possible cure by something like laetrile is actively and constantly solicited. They never happen. Don't let these people darken your thinking. Read more...

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