Lung cancer is the No 1 cause of cancer related death in the United States.

Which is why the whole of this episode is devoted to the latest lung cancer data presented at the 2015 annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) that took place recently in Chicago.

In the podcast you’ll hear from Dr Jack West (pictured right) a medical oncologist at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle and Dr Ross Camidge, Director of Thoracic Oncology at the University of Colorado.

Dr West is the President/Founder of GRACE (Global Resource for Advancing Cancer Education).
