Challenging Cases in Lung Cancer Podcast Series: Adjuvant Chemo for a Small NSCLC Tumor with a Satellite Lesion

Howard (Jack) West, MD, Associate Clinical Professor, Medical Oncology, Executive Director, Employer Services, Founder, President and CEO of GRACE

This is the first of a series of podcasts we've done, developed in partnership with LUNGevity Foundation, in which I present the same challenging cases in lung cancer management to a series of experts to learn the range of views offered by them, then the multiple thoughtful comments by all of them discussing the same single featured case for each podcast. The first discussants in each podcast will be Drs. Bob Doebele from University of Colorado and Jyoti Patel from Northwestern University, who are then followed by other terrific colleagues of mine:

  • Dr. Suresh Ramalingam, from Winship Cancer Center, Emory University in Atlanta, GA,
  • Dr. Jonathan Goldman, from Premier Oncology in Santa Monica, CA.
  • Dr. Julie Brahmer, from Sydney Kimmel Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins University, in Baltimore, MD
  • Dr. Heather Wakelee, from Stanford University Cancer Center in Palo Alto, CA
  • Dr. Karen Reckamp, from City of Hope Cancer Center in Duarte, CA

Our first case is a discussion of how they would approach a patient who has a small primary tumor that also has a separate microscopic satellite lesion nearby. Here's the links to the audio and video versions of the podcast (there isn't a lot of video to see, by the way), along with the transcript:


case series: small nsclc tumor w/satellite lesion audio podcast


Apologies that the video viewer within the post isn't installed, as it was in the prior version of the site. The tech folks will add that in very soon.

We'll be releasing a new podcast discussing an interesting case every couple of weeks. Big thanks to our great guest faculty for the program, as well as to LUNGevity Foundation.
