Brief Summary:
This study will compare two different methods of staging lung cancer to determine whether endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) staging of mediastinal lymph nodes will provide good diagnostic yield in detecting lung cancer, when compared to current methods of a staging bronchoscopy and cervical mediastinoscopy.

Cervical mediastinoscopy
This group will undergo cervical mediastinoscopy before surgery to stage their lung cancer (procedure decided by the surgeon).
Endo-bronchial ultrasound
This group will undergo endobronchial ultrasound before surgery to stage their lung cancer (procedure decided by the surgeon).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Lung cancer staging [ Time Frame: Pre-op and post-op ]
    Lung cancer staging (assessed by either cervical mediastinoscopy or EBUS) will be compared both pre-op and post-op.
