According to estimates, more than 244,000 new cases of lung cancer will be diagnosed in the United States this year; of those 85 to 90 percent will be non-small cell lung cancer. There are three main subtypes of this lung cancer, including squamous cell (epidermoid) carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, and large cell (undifferentiated) carcinoma. The cells in these subtypes look very different under a microscope, but the approach to treating them is often very similar. This QuickFACTS reference book on non-small cell lung cancer covers everything from risk factors for the disease to living well after treatment, with sections on the causes of non-small cell lung cancer, early detection, diagnosis and staging, and treatment. An essential guide for a newly diagnosed patient, this book covers the latest treatment guidelines and provides critical questions to ask the health care team.
