Spanish TRANSCRIPT

Cuando el cancer de células pequeñas se encuentra en estado limitado, el tratamiento es a base de radiación y quimioterapia al mismo tiempo (quimioterapia y radiación concurrente). Regularmente es cuatro a seis semanas de radiación con dos ciclos de quimioterapia al mismo tiempo. Una vez que ha pasado esto lo que esperamos es que se haya erradicado todo el cancer dentro del pulmón y curar a las personas. En algunos casos, también se da radiación al cerebro para prevenir que el cancer lo afecte, a esto se le llama por sus siglas en inglés: PCI.


  

English TRANSCRIPT

When the lung cancer of small cells is in limited stage we use at the same time a radiation and chemotherapy treatment (chemotherapy and radiation concurrent). Regularly, is four to six weeks of radiation with two cycles of chemotherapy at the same time. Once this is over, we hope the cancer is eradicated in the lung and the person is cured. In some cases, we also give PCI which is radiation to the brain to prevent its damage.
