Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer-related death in men, and in women, it has surpassed even breast cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, in 2001, there will be about 169,500 new cases of lung cancer in the United States: 90,700 among men and 78,800 among women. Lung Cancer is the second installment in the M. D. Anderson Cancer Care Series, featuring the current standard approach to lung cancer care from the experts at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center. Designed for the practicing oncologist, this clinical guidebook allows for quick, authoritative access to the latest and best multimodality therapies. Topics covered in this volume include the clinical examination of patients with suspected lung cancer, thoracic imaging techniques for non-small cell and small cell lung cancer, pathology of lung cancer, treatment and management of non-small and small-cell lung cancer, including the role of guidelines and clinical pathways, molecular events in lung cancer and implications for prevention and therapy, palliation, and much more. Each of the 15 chapters ends with an up-to-date list of suggested readings, as well as "key practice points" highlighting the most important principles and practices of each chapter for at-a-glance reference. Over 50 illustrations and 40 tables round out the text. This thorough, practical volume is the essential clinical guide for oncologists, surgeons, and all physicians involved in the care of patients with lung cancer
