The first several pages of the study linked and excerpted below talk about the genetic differences in minority lung cancer (LC) patients. Then the last two paragraphs plainly state that minority LC patients will do much better if they simply are 1) staged, 2) undergo surgery and 3) undergo chemotherapy.
If I read the study correctly it simply says that African-American LC patients will do as well as white LC patients if they get the same therapies as white patients do.
I will take this thinking one step further. Consider evidence-based, complementary and integrative therapies. In short, you would be helping surgery, radiation or chemo work better for you.
Have you been diagnosed with LC? What stage? Please scroll down the page, post a question or a comment and I will reply to you ASAP.
“These differences in treatment for African Americans are more important than the genetic differences,” Dr. Hicks said. “As a consumer advocate, I am suggesting that when faced with lung cancer, you certainly want to be treated by an institution or individual who has significant experience and a track record with that illness. Adequate staging to pick the best treatment is very important.””
