Why is it important?

It provides readers a board spectrum on the disease and its management and to appreciate the opinions from experts around the world.


It was a great pleasure to assist Professor P. Tai in preparation of this work. Her vision of collecting experts view points round the world on this subject and the co-operation of many eminent reviewers for their feedback on this task was almost mission impossible to achieve. The editorial provides extra up-to -date info after submission of all the articles before publication. We hope this work will provide readers a sense of vast achievements from the medical professionals on chest tumor management , regardless of the intention to cure or to palliate the disease .
