Evidence proves that screening saves lives, with screening for breast, colon, prostate and cervical cancers, for example, being accepted in many parts of the world as a routine part of medical care.

People with Severe Disabilities are at a Disadvantage for Early Detection and Treatment of Lung Cancer

Lung cancer patients with severe disabilities underwent less staging work-up and treatment and had slightly higher overall mortality compared to people with no disability.

Increased Survival in Patients with Metastatic NSCLC Receiving Treatment in Academic Centers

Patients with metastatic NSCLC receiving treatment at academic centers (ACs) have an increased 2-year survival compared to patients treated at community-based centers (CCs).

Active Surveillance of Lung Subsolid Nodules Reduces Unnecessary Surgery and Overtreatment

Subsolid nodules (SSN) can be considered a biomarker of lung cancer risk and should be managed with long-term active surveillance.

Racial-Ethnic Disparities in the Quality of End-of-Life Care Among Lung Cancer Patients

Significant disparities in the quality of end-of-life lung cancer care were found among racial-ethnic minorities, with higher odds of experiencing potentially preventable medical encounters during end-of-life as compared with non-Hispanic whites.

Chemoradiation in Elderly Patients with Stage III NSCLC Improves Overall Survival

Elderly patients with stage III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) showed improved overall survival (OS) when treated with chemoradiation (CRT) compared to definitive radiation (RT) alone.
