I have a question for anyone reading this. The way that lung cancer is treated seems to vary around the world and even in the UK. My husband has non small cell squamous lung cancer, stage 4. It has spread from his right lung to his scapula. He is having 6 rounds of chemotherapy (gemcetibine & carboplatin) every three weeks ie. Week 1 both, week 2 gem week three none then start again. He is also having radiotherapy for the growth on his scapula.
I have to say the doctors and nurses have been wonderful, quick to respond, supportive if we have concerns, really kind and professional. I don't have any doubts they are doing their best.
But my question is this, I read here about people who have had different approaches to treatment. Many have had operations, some talk about 50 plus rounds of radiotherapy. Is it the case that this cancer is treated more aggressively outside the UK?
I just want to understand what is the best treatment for my husband?
