  • Chemotherapy uses drugs to destroy cancer cells or to slow down their growth.
  • Integrative medicine is the use of complementary therapies, such as acupuncture, counseling and yoga, to manage disease symptoms or treatment side effects.

    Lung cancer screening helps doctors find lung cancer in its early stages, when it is most treatable.

However, most people do not need lung cancer screening.
