In brief: Stage and type

Important if small cell or non-small cell.
Key to good cancer care is a comprehensive multidisciplinary and individualized approach. If indicated, surgical resection should be performed by a thoracic surgeon. I hope these assist you: http://goo.Gl/2cdq9 and http://goo.Gl/jx197.
