Book Description
Lung cancer is the commonest preventable cancer of the 21st century. As smoking cessation initiatives take effect its incidence should decrease, but we are still facing a large burden of disease for at least the next 30 years, with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) accounting for 80% of the load. This insightful guide is designed to bring you up to speed with the latest developments. It provides a concise, practical overview of new targeted therapies, the latest CT-based screening approaches and the use of stereotactic radiation for early-stage tumors, together with the latest revisions to the lung cancer classification for small biopsies and cytology specimens and lung cancer TNM staging system. While early detection strategies should increase identification of patients with early-stage disease – who can usually be cured with a combination of surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy – most patients with NSCLC still present with locally advanced or metastatic disease. Proposed changes to the TNM classification system will improve the accuracy of staging in these individuals, and we predict that up to 50% of patients with advanced NSCLC will benefit from some form of targeted treatment over the next 5 years. Furthermore, modulation of the immune system and the subsequent opportunities for personalized treatment will have a profound positive effect on the natural history of NSCLC. Fast Facts: Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer is important reading for all health professionals and medical trainees working in this fast-moving area.
