Doctor in the House: Supporting Lung Cancer Patients

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. Lung cancer is one of the most fatal cancers in Malaysia – not because it cannot be treated but because 90% of cases in Malaysia are only detected at the advanced stages. What can we do to diagnose lung cancer earlier, so that patients have better outcomes and quality of life? In conjunction with Lung Cancer Awareness Month in November, consultant cardiothoracic surgeon Dr Anand Sachithanandan and consultant oncologist Dr Tho Lye Mun join us to discuss advances in screening and treatment of lung cancer, as well as what they have achieved through the Lung Cancer Network Malaysia in the first year since it’s been launched.
