Here is the second of three cases covering issues in managing elderly and frail patients with lung cancer that I discussed with experts Paul J. Hesketh from Lahey Clinic and Karen Kelly from Kansas University Medical Center. Both major experts in lung cancer, they have a lot of experience and have been leaders in publishing on the understudied population of elderly and poor performance status patients with lung cancer.
