Expert Case Discussion: Treating the Patient with a "Precocious Metastasis" with Curative Intent

H. Jack West, MD, Founder, President and CEO

Here is the last of three interesting cases I discussed with Drs. Alex Farivar, thoracic surgeon at Swedish Cancer Institute here in Seattle, and Anne Tsao, medical oncologist at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. This particular case is a man I saw a few years ago, with a solitary brain lesion and what otherwise appeared to be a very isolated lung cancer in the right upper lobe. His case brings up issues of the feasibility of treating someone with a solitary lesion with curative intent.

Here is the audio and video versions of the discussion, along with the transcript and figures.
