Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer related deaths among men and women in USA. Significant advances have been made in the screening for lung cancer, diagnosis and treatment during the past decade. With reduction in the incidence of smoking the incidence of lung cancer among men has been decreasing in the US. In addition with early diagnosis, advances in the treatment has impacted overall survival. Minimally invasive techniques for diagnosis, staging and surgical resection has reduced the morbidity and mortality associated with these as well as targeted personalized approach guided by molecular markers is increasingly used. Even among patients with advanced disease innovative therapy appear to lead to a chronic course of this disease even in the advanced cancer stages. Multidisciplinary approach to the care is critical. In this special issue of the Journal we will address recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer.

Proposed Topics:

1.   Lang cancer screening

2.   Establishing diagnosis

3.   Gender in epidemiology and outcomes

4.   Pathology and molecular markers

5.   Surgery in the diagnosis and treatment

6.   Radiation for limited and advance cancer

7.   Chemotherapy and immunotherapy

8.   Use of complementary and alternative medicine

9.   Supportive and palliative care
