While there are some treatment options available for the specific type of lung cancer you have, there is a need to improve the tolerability of treatment in an older population. Afatinib is approved in the US to treat your type of lung cancer. The purpose of this study is to see what side effects lead to dose reduction of afatinib in participants who are 70 years old or older.
70 years or older, with recurrent or Stage IV Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)
