Unfortunately, there is no cure for lung or liver cancer, although the cancer can be treated with chemo and radiation therapy. This is usually done to reduce the cancer or to even to put the patient in remission. It is worth while to have the test done, as it will assist with making a diagnosis of the spesific type of cancer.

Good luck and do not hesitate to post any further questions.
