Precision surgery, it matters

In recent years we are witnessing an increase in thoracic pathology thanks to the increase in lung cancer screening, we have also observed an increase in complex cases of chest wall pathology. Lung cancer screening can lead to overdiagnosis and over-treatment as a result of increased awareness of lung cancer with a more intensive screening and the identification of a larger number of lung nodules with low, medium or high risk of malignancy. This should be an opportunity to optimize the application of the best treatment for patients at risk of lung cancer.
