As researchers have learned more about the changes in non small cell lung cancer nsclc cells that help them grow they have developed newer drugs to specifically target these changes targeted drugs work differently from standard chemotherapy chemo drugs they sometimes work when chemo drugs don . New medical treatments called targeted therapies are becoming available for lung cancer unlike traditional chemotherapy these treatments target proteins on cancer cells or target normal cells that have been hijacked by the tumor in its attempts to growfor that reason they tend to have fewer side effects that many of the medications used for cancer. Therapy for advanced non small cell lung cancer has developed significantly with new awareness of histologic subtype as an important factor in guiding treatment and the development of targeted agents for molecular subgroups harboring critical mutations that spur on cancer growth. The treatment options for non small cell lung cancer nsclc are based mainly on the stage extent of the cancer but other factors such as a persons overall health and lung function are also important learn about treatment options here. Targeted therapy for lung cancer non small cell lung cancer is the most common form of lung cancer with adenocarcinomas being the most common sub type 20 to 30 of tumors of adenocarcinoma histology have the egfr mutation these mutations predominate in female never smokers currently the two drugs
