Event Description

Recommendations from patients and experts on lung cancer misperception

Lung Cancer is the most deadly cancer of the big four: more people die for lung cancer than of colon, breast and prostate cancer together. Yet, it receives considerably less attention than the other large cancer.

You are invited to a stakeholder discussion on lung cancer, the most deadly and silent type of cancer, on lung cancer patient and misperceptions at the European Parliament on the 18th of November.

  •  Prof Jesper Holst Petersen, MD, DMSc Consultant in Thoracic Surgery, Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Rigshospitalet, Denmark
  •  Prof Silvia Novello, Assistant Professor in the Thoracic Oncology Unit at San Luigi Hospital in Orbassano, Italy
  •  Prof Harry Groen, University of Groningen, University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG), Netherlands

LuCE is participating in a research on lung cancer and this stakeholder discussion will provide the opportunity to give input to the interim results.

This offers an important opportunity to discuss how Member States – and the European Union as a whole – are approaching the major public health challenge of cancer (lung cancer) as a chronic disease and future actions.
