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