Hi, folks. My brother has been recently diagnosed with lung cancer. I think that his first option is chemotherapy. I would like to know how long a chemo lasts for a lung cancer. I have no previous experience with this, so I will need a piece of info here. All your replies are more than welcomed.

Hi, there. Chemotherapy is given in certain regimes. Each regime has specific chemotherapeutic drugs. Usually, a regime consists of 2 or even more drugs. Which drug will be used depends on the histological type of lung cancer. The most used cisplatin, taxotere, adriamycin, etoposide, vincristine, etc. I think that usual treatment lasts for about 9 weeks. Since I am not a medical expert, you should consult an expert. I hope everything will be all right. Good luck!
