Different treatments in Europe and the United States have shown how science improved the therapies against lung carcinomas and how survival rates are increasing day by day, unfortunately since the beginning of the 19th century also the number of incidences of lung carcinomas also increased drastically, let's hope science and nature can show one day the power they both can achieve together.
