ASCO/ESMO 2021 Lung Cancer Recap

Video

Drs. H. Jack West, Joan Schiller, and Isabel Preeshagul gathered this past year (virtually) to review information presented at ASCO and ESMO 2021, regarding patients dealing with a Lung Cancer diagnosis.

For this series, the doctors discuss new trials for patients with NSCLC and SCLC.  The video discussions cover the following topics:

how much of a threat is this

Hi! I recently had an xray for pain to my R rib (after helping someone move). Came back contusion but found a 1cm nodular density projecting over the L lower lung fields. CT of chest in 2011 detected nothing on L but 6mm on R. Lung screening 2014 detected 4 to 5 mm on R and a new 3 to 4 mm on lower L. So if it is the same nodule lower L grew from 3 to 4 mm to 1 cm over 7 years. I am scheduled for follow up CT in 9 days. My dilemma is #1 that I am worried about this growth and #2 that I am scheduled to leave for Puerto Vallarta for 2.5 weeks.

This article gives a high-level introduction to precision medicine.
