Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer in the U.S., with Kentucky ranked first in the nation for lung cancer death and Ohio and Indiana in the top 15. The good news is that lung cancer is highly treatable with early detection. Cure rates can be as high as 80 to 90 percent. With medical advances, even late stage lung cancer patients are experiencing better outcomes.
Here to discuss lung cancer rates, early detection and treatment are Co-directors of the UC Cancer Institute's Lung Cancer Center Dr. Sandra Starnes and Dr. John Morris.
