Why Lung Cancer Screening Isn’t for Never Smokers
Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer of both men and women. Why is the disease so fatal? One reason is that lung cancer does not often show symptoms until later stages when it has already spread. This makes early detection key and lung cancer screening so important for those at risk, particularly for those who have smoked heavily and for a long time.

What You Need to Know About Lung Cancer Screening
According to the American Cancer Society, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in both men and women in the United States. An easy screening can save your life.
Many still skip lung cancer screenings that could catch disease before it's too late

Brief Guide to Current Treatments for Metastatic Lung Cancer
In light of the recent explosion in clinical trial data in non-small cell lung cancer, Dr Mark Kris provides a straightforward approach to making treatment decisions for these patients.
What Is Lung Cancer?
Lung cancer causes some cells in the lungs to grow out of control. These cells are called cancer cells. Cancer cells grow at a different rate than normal cells. Their size and shape are also not normal. Cancer cells can spread to other areas in the lungs, or they can travel to other parts of the body Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Most cases of lung cancer are called non-small cell. There are a few different types of non-small cell lung cancer. These include…

Lung Cancer 101
Types and Staging of Lung Cancer There are two major types of lung cancer, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC). Staging lung cancer is based on whether the cancer is local or has spread from the lungs to the lymph nodes or other organs. Because the lungs are large, tumors can grow in them for a long time before they are found. Even when symptoms—such as coughing and fatigue—do occur, people think they are due to other causes…
