    I’m going into 3 years on Targeted Therapy Drug. It’s working. Has a few side effects, but they are minor

    That’s so great to hear that you’re three years in and experiencing only minor side effects. Thank you for sharing since I know that will give many other community members hope. Keep us updated with your story if you want!

    In addition to comments by those in the community who may have personal experience as well, these articles explore targeted therapy more deeply:

    Targeted therapies are cancer treatments that stop or slow the spread of cancer by interfering with specific molecules that are involved in the cancer cell’s growth processes; there are different categories of targeted therapy that have been developed to treat non-small cell lung cancer that are based on genetic mutations and molecular processes that have been found in some NSCLC tumors.
