My father was previously diagnosed with stage 1 lung cancer and went for chemotherapy and was in remission successfully. However he continued smoking heavily and 2 years later, was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer. His doctor is suggesting using a mix of chemotherapy and proton therapy to treat the cancer.

Can we just do proton therapy?
