We encourage exploring clinical trials each time you make a treatment decision. Joining a clinical trial allows you to be active in your treatment, which may make you feel more in control. A trial may allow you to try a new treatment before it is widely available and you have a role in shaping future treatments and improving the lives of other patients.
For more information on clinical trials see the section under Treatment Options called Clinical Trials.
There are hundreds of lung cancer clinical trials going on all over the country. For help finding one that might be right or you, use our Lung Cancer Clinical Trial Matching Service at 1-800-698-0931 to speak with a Clinical Trial Navigator. You will be asked about the cancer and treatments and can receive a list of appropriate clinical trials either by e-mail or mail. You can also search the database by clicking here.
