Pancoast Tumor FAQs
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a Pancoast tumor, you likely have quite a few questions. You may be wondering what the typical outcome is for patients with the condition, what sort of treatment options are available and what you might expect if you choose to participate in a clinical trial.
