What is the prognosis of Non Small Cell Lung Cancer?

Certain factors affect prognosis (chance of recovery) and treatment options.


The prognosis (chance of recovery) and treatment options depend on the following:

  • The stage of the cancer (the size of the tumor and whether it is in the lung only or has spread to other places in the body).
  • The type of lung cancer.
  • Whether there are symptoms such as coughing or trouble breathing.
  • The patient’s general health.
