Not all people diagnosed with lung cancer smoke and in fact lung cancer is a disease that can affect anyone. Today most people who get lung cancer have either stopped smoking years earlier or never smoked. So, what are the current risk factors, what are the symptoms, and what are the treatment options? Lung cancer is the topic and our guests are Dr. Jorge Gomez, Medical Director of the Thoracic Oncology Program at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York and Marge Stoneking of the American Lung Association.
