Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology

Full access

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in both men and women in the United States. An estimated 171,900 new cases (91,800 in men, 80,100 in women) of lung cancer will be diagnosed in 2003, and 157,200 deaths (88,400 in men, 68,800 in women) will occur due to the disease. Only 14% of all lung cancer patients will be alive 5 years or more after diagnosis. The primary risk factor for lung cancer is smoking, which accounts for over 85% of all lung cancer-related deaths. The guidelines discuss diagnosis, staging, therapy, and surveillance for non-small cell lung cancer.
