The book is a comprehensive collection that consists of nine chapters, including molecular biology, pathological classification, diagnosis, multidisciplinary therapy, surgical treatment, radiochemotherapy, exercise therapy, multidisciplinary care and clinical trials. The treatment of lung cancer has been refined by collaborations between disciplines, which make multidisciplinary care models increasingly used in clinical practice in recent years. For some complicated cases, surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or targeted therapy alone is not enough and should be managed by multidisciplinary teams which may include pulmonologists, surgeons, oncologists, pathologists, and radiologists. We believe that this book will be an excellent literary resource for clinicians and medical staff who want to get a better understanding of the treatment of lung cancer.
