Lung Cancer: What You Should Know about Prevention, Detection, Treatment and Survival

Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined. It is the leading cause of cancer death among both men and women. The American Cancer Society estimates that 224,210 new cases of lung cancer will be diagnosed and 159,260 people will die from lung cancer in 2014.

Join physicians from East Jefferson General Hospital for a roundtable discussion on what we can all do to minimize our risks and the very latest in treatment options and survivorship.
