In the United States alone, the incidence of new cases of thoracic neoplasms is over 180,000. Each year, over 170,000 individuals are expected to die of their cancer. Lung cancer is the most common of the thoracic neoplasms. It is the leading cause of cancer death in both men and women, accounting for 28% of all cancer deaths in the United States. Thoracic Oncology provides an up-to-date and concise review of the various thoracic neoplasms and offers a better understanding of the biology, natural history, diagnosis and treatment of these malignancies. This book will be of particular interest to clinicians interested in thoracic neoplasms, to better understand and treat them
