Lung cancer diagnosis and management: New guidelines

The American College of Chest Physicians has issued the second edition of clinical practice guidelines on lung cancer diagnosis and management.

"Other than skin cancer, lung cancer is now the most common cancer and is the most frequent cause of death from cancer in both men and women,"

The ACCP published guidelines for the diagnosis and management of lung cancer first time in 2003. Due to many recent changes in the diagnosis and management of lung cancer, updated guidelines have been issued.

The Study Highlights section highlights the chapters that have been extensively updated; these include "Screening for Lung Cancer", "Management of Patients with Pulmonary Nodules", "Palliative Care Consultation", "Quality of Life Measurement", and "Bereavement for End-of-Life Care in Patients with Lung Cancer."
