Conclusion: From our findings, we can conclude that the issue of radiation-induced brachial plexus complication in human is of great concern. Common symptoms associated with this complication include paresthesia, numbness, pain and weakness. We recommend the use of individual dose planning and computer-assisted image segmentation techniques that support rapid and reliable contouring of the brachial plexus. Also, the radiation dose to the brachial plexus should be limited as much as possible to reduce the risk of brachial plexopathy.

Minimally invasive surgery for thoracic procedures has increased steadily over the last decade, with video assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) accounting for over 60% of lobectomies in 2015.1 While the use of VATS for lobectomy in lung cancer patients has increased, there has also been a concurrent increase in the use of robotic assisted thoracoscopic surgery (RATS).2 Both approaches have been associated with improved postoperative complications and pain compared to open lobectomy,3,4 with no detrimental effect on oncologic resection or overall survival.

Minority patients with lung cancer often have higher rates of morbidity and mortality. This leads to increased suffering among minority patients with lung cancer. Little is known, however, about disparities in supportive care needs among patients with advanced lung cancer and how these needs evolve over time.

Precision medicine has dramatically improved survival for a subset of adults with mNSCLC, yet mNSCLC remains a life-limiting illness. Prognostic awareness allows patients and caregivers to plan for the future and discuss preferences with their medical team.
