Lung cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the lungs. The lungs are two spongy organs in the chest that take in oxygen and remove carbon dioxide.
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide, as it is often difficult to diagnose in its early stages.
In the early stages, surgery (VATS lobectomy, robotic lung surgery) for removing the lung cancer-containing portion of the lung offers the best outcome.
