Treatment depends on the specific type of lung cancer. Each type is treated differently. Some or all of the following treatments and therapies may be needed:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation
  • Surgery


For years, Dr. Mekhail, medical director of the Thoracic Oncology Program at the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute, has been participating in groundbreaking lung cancer research and clinical trials to help those who are or might be afflicted with the disease breath much easier.

However, current research, some of which involves the animal instincts of a dog, has changed the direction of the disease.  Much of the research and breakthroughs occurring at Cancer Institute of Florida have been presented, and now implemented, at numerous oncology practices around the country.
