Abstract

Lung cancer is the second most common cancer in the UK, however it is responsible for the highest number of cancer deaths. In the past decade advances have been made in lung cancer diagnosis, and the treatment and management of associated problems but the impact on survival and quality of life has been minimal. Understanding how patients are diagnosed with lung cancer, the treatments available and how to manage related concerns and issues will enable nurses to improve the care they provide to lung cancer patients and their families.
