Moderator Michael Chernew, MD, introduces panelists as they discuss the treatment overview of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This includes the therapeutic importance of distinguishing NSCLC by histology. Dr Sugarbaker says that adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and large-cell carcinoma (LCC) are all considered in the broader category of NSCLC. The therapy for each of these histologies is determined by different indicators, and then classified into stages I-IV.
