    Alright, ladies and gentleman, let's take a look at lung cancer. Lung nodule versus a cancer. What’s going on here? A solitary pulmonary nodule. Remember, just because you find a nodule within, let's say CT, you have to be careful, don’t you? Because that density that you’re gonna find, it could be number of things. If its a small density that you’re going to find and there’s many of them, you’re a little worried now because maybe that’s metastasis. If you find a large nodule and it’s rather wide and calcific, then you might be thinking along the lines of granulomatosis with polyangiitis or granulomas, in general. But, if it’s solitary pulmonary nodule, a single density, found on imaging studies such as a CT, in which it’s less than 3 cms in diameter. Now, as a general rule, that 3 cm, you can apply many places including the nodule that you find in the liver, that you might found with cirrhosis, micro-macro nodule. They’re surrounded by normal lung parenchyma, solitary pulmonary nodule, this is not the cancer. However, let's get into actual cancer. The way that this is divided into clinical lung cancer is the following. Let's take a look at our first family and this then includes our bronchogenic carcinoma. Under bronchogenic carcinoma, the way that this is then worded, if you take up any, if you pick up any medical journal, New England, Lancet, whatever. On the first few pages, often times, you have this huge plastered advertisements and it’s dealing with how to treat with what’s known as non-small cell lung cancer. Why do they choose, and as we walk through here, things that you want to keep in mind, why do they choose on every single magazine to be talking about a non-small cell lung cancer?...
