Lung Cancer

Posted on December 5th, 2001 by

Lung cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer among both men and women in the United States. Each year, more than 114,000 men and more than 100,000 women will be diagnosed with lung cancer. There are an estimated 360,000 lung cancer survivors living in the U.S. today. Although long-term survival with lung cancer remains poor, progress is being made in lung cancer treatment. Advances in surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and targeted therapy are all contributing to improved lung cancer survival. In addition, advances in supportive care have made lung cancer treatment more tolerable, leading to improved quality of life. Understanding lung cancer treatment options, the role of different doctors specializing in the treatment of lung cancer, and how and when to access new and innovative lung cancer treatment options available through clinical trials is essential in order to achieve the best outcome from lung cancer treatment. The Cancer Consultants Lung Cancer Information Center has been designed to help patients understand lung cancer and lung cancer treatment options while providing ongoing information, inspiration, support, and community to individuals affected by a diagnosis of lung cancer.
