Can lung cancer recur?

Specialists can’t predict whether the disease will recur or not because even after tumor removal, cancer cells might still be present in the body, but they are too small and can’t be detected. Chemotherapy aims to destroy all the cancer cells, but recurrence cases have also been registered after this treatment. Given the facts, it is highly recommended that patients stick to a strict follow-up visit routine to help doctors spot recurrence early.

We wanted a resource where people who are looking for better help can find it, because one of the issues that I have found is that the diagnosis takes a little bit, some people don’t know if they are diagnosed or not. This is something that it is important enough, that is why I wanted to put the information together.
