What is lung cancer?

Lung Cancer Treatment

Lung cancer is a condition where abnormal cells grow uncontrollably in the lungs. These cells can spread to nearby tissues and form tumors. Lung cancer can develop in any part of the lungs and respiratory system. There are two main types of lung cancer: non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC). NSCLC is more common, while SCLC grows quickly and is more likely to spread.

What causes it?

Although smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer, it can also develop in people who have never smoked. Exposure to harmful substances can also cause lung cancer in some individuals. Additionally, cancer can be caused by genetic mutations that occur as you age.

What are the symptoms?

The initial symptoms of lung cancer can include a persistent cough, wheezing, and shortness of breath. Other signs may include chest pain and coughing up blood.

How is it diagnosed?

Your medical history, symptoms, and family history of cancer can help your doctor determine the probability of lung cancer. Additional testing may be required to confirm a diagnosis. Chest X-rays or CT scans are typically used to detect lung cancer.

Lung cancer staging

Each stage has several combinations of size and spread that can fall into that category. For instance, the primary tumor in a Stage 3 cancer could be smaller than in a Stage 2 cancer, but other factors put it at a more advanced stage.

The general staging for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) lung cancer is:

  • Stage 0: (carcinoma/tumor in-situ): Cancer is in the top lining of the lung or bronchus. It hasn't spread to other parts of the lung or outside of the lung.
  • Stage 1: Cancer hasn't spread outside the lung.
  • Stage 2: Cancer is larger than Stage I, has spread to lymph nodes inside the lung, or there's more than one tumor in the same lobe of the lung.
  • Stage 4: Cancer is larger than Stage II, has spread to nearby lymph nodes or structures or there's more than one tumor in a different lobe of the same lung.
  • Stage 4: Cancer has spread to the other lung, the fluid around the lung, the fluid around the heart or distant organs.

Small Cell Lung Cancer stages

Small cell lung cancer is described using two stages: limited and extensive.

  • Limited stage lung cancer is only in one lung with or without spreading to the lymph nodes in the mediastinum (area in the chest between the lungs).
  • Extensive stage lung cancer has spread to tissue outside of the originally affected lung like the opposite lung or distant organs.

We Treat All Stages and Types of Lung Cancer:

  • Early-stage cancer of the lung
  • Locally advanced cancer of the lung (spread to lymph nodes or organs around the lung)
  • Metastatic cancer of the lung (spread to distant organs)
  • Recurrent cancer of the lung

Less Invasive Approach to Lung Cancer Treatment with ICCA Global

Lung cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in men, and is the leading cause of cancer death worldwide. The disease claims about as many lives each year as breast, pancreatic, and prostate cancer combined. But there is hope, the number of new lung cancer diagnoses are declining steadily. Mortality rates are declining even faster, which likely reflects advances in treatment and early detection. For years, the standard treatment for lung cancer has been surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. However, these treatments can often cause unwanted side effects that can negatively impact the patient's quality of life.

Through FivePoints Cancer Care™, our integrative and alternative lung cancer therapies were formulated with 3 vital functions in mind, placing the patient at the center:

  1. Safe and effective in shrinking and destroying the tumor while minimizing debilitating side effects associated with traditional treatments.
  2. Provide the patient with a significant chance to avoid life-altering surgery.
  3. Prevent cancer from further spreading to critical organs and tissue.

What We Do For You

Our physicians employ FivePoints Cancer Care™, a comprehensive treatment program that goes beyond what is typically available to patients in the U.S. and Canada. We offer customized, multifactorial cancer protocols that work in synergy to combat the disease:

FivePOINTS Cancer Care™ consists of:

  • Integrative Cancer Care (minimizes debilitating side effects) with real-time imaging (PET/CT)
  • Live-Cell Tumor Profiling (optimizes ideal targeting agents for treatment)
  • Tumor-Specific Immunotherapy with Tumor-Specific Hyperthermia and Short-Course Radiation (avoids unnecessary systemic damage)
  • Non-Surgical Tumor-Specific Ablation (by freezing or heat)
  • Regenerative and Restorative Medicine (restores homeostasis)

We specialize in cancer treatments that support the whole body, while preserving and restoring quality of life:

Eric L.Liver Cancer Patient

"I am absolutely delighted with the results of the FivePOINTS Cancer Care ™ treatment program provided by ICCA Global. My sincerest thanks go to the Doctors and the medical team, who custom designed and administered an amazing treatment plan that, in my mind, could not have been more successful."

TanyaBreast Cancer Patient

"It's been a year and a half, and I'm still clear, and I'm going to stay clear. If I was to ever go for something like that again, I would hands down go back to ICCA Global. They're just one of a kind, truly, from the treatments that's not done anywhere else, to the facility, staff, doctors, everybody involved are just absolutely amazing, five-stars. And I would recommend ICCA any day. If you're hesitant or nervous or scared, don't be, give them a chance. Call them, consult with them. Just know that the place is real and it's amazing. I have no regrets, it was the best decision of my life."

GiannaPatient's Family Member

"My sister came to ICCA Global with colon to liver, to lungs two years ago - and very near death. She is 100% cancer free today."

Bernie B.Patient's Wife

"I brought my husband to ICCA Global for stage 3 lung cancer that spread to the lymph nodes, and he's doing extremely well. He went through three weeks of treatment and he was not sick a day. Not once. Their standards as far as cancer treatment goes, are superior."

* Each patient is unique, and their treatments are tailored accordingly. Individual results will vary. Please consult your doctor before making any changes to your medical treatment. Not every patient is a candidate for care or achieves these results.

Introducing an innovative technique known as tumor ablations, which effectively eradicates a wide range of cancerous tumors by harnessing the power of microwave energy, extreme heat or cold.

Tumor ablations are an alternative to conventional cancer treatment methods such as chemotherapy and surgery, which are invasive and can have debilitating side effects. With ablations, patients can avoid repeated dosing of chemotherapy or the long-term effects of radiation. Tumor ablations are relatively easy and well-tolerated. The recovery time is much faster and less invasive compared to surgery.

Ablation therapy helps to eliminate these tumors locally which prevents tumors from spreading further. Even more, ablation therapy can help to slow the growth of cancerous cells, reduce symptoms and improve the patient's quality of life.

Through this cutting-edge procedure, a surgeon can easily access the tumor by inserting a small laparoscopic port or open incision. To ensure precision, a CT scan or ultrasonic guidance is employed to accurately locate the tumor. Learn more at
In the field of precision medicine, there is a need to address the damage caused to cellular tissues and organs by cancer and its treatment. This can be achieved through the replacement, restoration, or revitalization of these compromised areas.

Our approach to supporting this process is through nutritional and supplemental counseling. By analyzing the individual patient's metabolomic signatures using blood-derived mass spectrometry, a comprehensive understanding of their metabolites can be obtained.

This emerging technology has the potential to inform and enhance the practice of precision medicine, offering new possibilities for improving patient outcomes, to repair and rejuvenate cellular tissues and organs that have been affected by cancer or the side effects of cancer treatment.
