Giorgio V. Scagliotti, MD, PhD, head of the Thoracic Oncology Unit, Department of Clinical and Biological Sciences, University of Turin, San Luigi Hospital, Orbassano, Italy, explains 3 lung cancer topics that require more awareness and research to produce optimal results in the future.

  1. Regardless of the cost a connection between early lung cancer detection and lower mortality needs to be established.
