No. Cancer is the uncontrolled multiplication of abnormal cells that needs a combination of treatment modalities comprising surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and targeted therapy. It is only during targeted therapy that a doctor prescribes medicines to block the growth and spread of the cancer cells by inhibiting genes and proteins that promote cancer cell growth.
However, the available studies suggest that medicines may not completely dissolve the existing cancer growth. For complete removal of the growth, a doctor may suggest surgery to cut out the cyst/tumour tissue and then additional chemotherapy or radiation therapy to kill any residual cancer cells.
In conclusion, a single treatment cannot treat lung cancer as the disease needs a combination of therapies that can kill the primary cancer and the metastases.
