Abstract

In India, lung cancer is currently the fourth most common cancer and accounts for nearly 8% of all cancer related deaths. In our centre, lung cancer contributes approximately 8-10% of all newly diagnosed cases. This is a prospective comparison of weekly cisplatin to 3-weekly cisplatin and etoposide as concurrent chemotherapy with standard radiotherapy (CCRT) for unresectable locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer (LA-NSCLC).
