What kind of healthcare team is a lung cancer patient likely to see?
It’s important to think about a team approach if you have lung cancer. It’s important to realize that your family and friends are part of that team approach, as well as your healthcare professionals. In terms of your healthcare team, it’s important to have what’s called a "multidisciplinary" approach where different doctors and healthcare members bring different types of expertise to help you fight your lung cancer.
