Lung cancer has been the most common cancer in the world for several decades.
As majority of the patients of non-small cell lung cancer present in locally advanced stage along with poor general condition, therefore they cannot tolerate conventional radical regimes and doses of radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Such patients require urgent symptomatic relief and reduction in tumor burden. Therefore for such patients an individualized treatment approach has to be crafted. We are reporting a case of locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer which showed a miraculous response to an individualized approach of sequential therapy comprising of Radiotherapy, chemotherapy and metronomic Cyclophosphamide.
