Lung cancer is among the most common cancers worldwide. Additionally, it is the leading cause of deaths due to any cancer. Smoking has been identified to be the leading cause of lung cancer. Despite advances in treatment, the outcome of patients with advanced lung cancer remains poor. In addition to exploring new avenues of research, strategies to reduce smoking may be helpful in improving outcomes.
Lilly Oncology is committed to providing answers to the complexities of cancer care by investigating therapies and support services that can make a meaningful difference for patients. We're working to help take cancer care beyond today's standards.
For Patients: In this section, patients can find useful information on lung cancer and answers to some common questions on lung cancer. Please use the menu on the right to access all the relevant information.
For Healthcare Professionals: We have recently developed an online tool which is called the Visual Diagnosis Guide that allows them to accurately demonstrate the location of tumors, metastasis and easily customize the stage and type of cancer for each patient. In addition, health care professionals can print off or email a copy of the information to give to your patient, their family, GP or other members.
