Lung cancer treatment side effects

All treatments have potential side effects, but the extent to which you experience them will be unique to you and will depend on the treatment given. Not everyone experiences debilitating side effects but it's important to understand those you might expect from your treatment and to talk with your treatment team about any you experience so they can be managed. Many side effects go away when treatment ends but some may persist and become a long term side effect or late effect.
