Brief Summary:
Long-term non-interventional monitoring of diagnostics and treatment patterns in newly diagnosed patients in selected pneumology centers in Czech republic.

Condition or disease
Lung Cancer

Detailed Description:

Diagnosis, treatment and care of patients with bronchogenic carcinoma (BCA) is, as with most other oncological diseases, a complex multidisciplinary process. Due to the lack of information on the speed and success of the initial diagnosis, the use of the necessary laboratory techniques, and the individual therapeutic steps leading to cure or medical failure, the Czech Pneumological and Phtizeology Society (CPPS) decided to carry out long-term non-interventional monitoring of newly diagnosed patients.

This monitoring is non-interventional, so the usual diagnostic and therapeutic procedures will be used according to the decision of the physician. All patients with bronchogenic carcinoma diagnosed from June 1, 2018 will be enrolled with up to 60 months of follow-up.
