Transcript

At most centers, pulmonologists are primarily responsible for the early detection and diagnosis of lung cancer, the staging of lung cancer and providing input on the treatment plan for the patients. Surgeons, radiation oncologists, and medical oncologists subsequently treat the patient once the diagnosis and staging workup is complete. The treatment modalities include surgery, chemotherapy, targeted therapies and radiation.
