What If We Told You Lung Cancer Hits Non-Smokers Too?

For decades, lung cancer has been synonymous with smokers. But the profile of people newly diagnosed with lung cancer may be changing. Dr Anand Sachithanandan, President of the Lung Cancer Network Malaysia, and Dr Jamalul Azizi, Consultant Pulmonologist from Hospital Serdang, join us to explore the rise of lung cancer among non-smokers, and whether artificial intelligence has the potential to improve lung cancer screening. We also get an update on how the pandemic has affected lung cancer diagnoses, treatment services and outcomes.
