Each year, more than 170,000 Americans develop lung cancer. Although cancer rates fell in 2008, lung cancer incidence and mortality increased in 18 states, in part because the disease has no accepted screening test to aid in early detection.

In The Cleveland Clinic Guide to Lung Cancer, Dr. Peter Mazzone, profiled on several “best doctors” lists, presents critical information about the latest scientific studies and progress in the fight against lung cancer. This important resource gives readers the cutting-edge medical guidance Dr. Mazzone offers his patients, including:
  • The tests patients will encounter
  • Types of lung cancer and their stages
  • How to most effectively battle lung cancer
  • Clear explanations of the newest studies

  • Personal stories of those who have triumphed over lung cancer
  • Fast facts and red-fl ag sidebars
  • Plus, advice on how to make the necessary lifestyle choices to live an active and healthy life
