November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month -Update on Lung Cancer

The month of November brings lung cancer into focus. Over the past few years great strides have been made in the treatment of non small cell lung cancer due to the advancement of precision cancer medicines and immunotherapy.

Lung cancer remains the second most common cancer in women (behind breast cancer) and also the second most common in men (behind prostate cancer). In 2021 there will be approximately 225,000 individuals diagnosed with lung cancer in the United States.

Staying informed with the latest news on the prevention, screening of high risk individuals, and treatment advances are all important in order to reducing the risk of developing lung cancer and ensure optimal care and achieve the best possible outcomes.
