Lung cancer is a major cause of cancer-related deaths in men and women. However, since the first edition of "Lung Cancer" was published 14 years ago, rapid progress in the biology, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the disease has been made.

This outstanding team from the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center takes an evidence-based approach to lung cancer management and explains these advances in depth. Comprehensive treatment guidelines are provided, the third edition of Lung Cancer explores vital issues such as:
Lung cancer susceptibility and risk assessment
The pathology and pathogenesis of peripheral lung adenocarcinoma including bronchioloalveolar carcinoma
Screening for early detection
Advances in molecular and genetic markers
The detection and treatment of pre-neoplastic lesions and screening for lung cancer
Novel therapies such as angiogenesis and multi-tyrosine kinase inhibitors


"Lung Cancer" is a concise summary of advances in lung cancer clinical research and treatment for the clinician and is an invaluable reference for respiratory physicians, medical oncologists, clinical and surgical oncologists.
