Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer-related death in the world. Recently, better understanding of the biology of lung cancer has led to the development of newer targeted therapies for specific subpopulations of lung cancer patients. While this has led to multiple exciting advances that promise to improve outcomes in the future, there has also been a significant increase in the complexity of care of the lung cancer patient. Part of the Oxford American Oncology Library, this concise handbook identifies best-practice guidelines, as well as differences of opinion in the field. It presents the most current procedures for the diagnosis and management of lung cancer in a succinct and easy-to-read manner. Chapters focus on topics such as the biology, pathology, and staging of lung cancer, special populations, and supportive care. Lung Cancer is a must-have tool for busy oncologists.
