Lung cancer remains the most commonly diagnosed cancer worldwide and the leading cause of cancer-related mortality. More than 80 % of all newly diagnosed cases of lung cancer are non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Despite recent advances, 40 % of patients still have advanced disease at the moment of diagnosis. Clinical information, pathological diagnosis and molecular assessment are needed to guide the systemic therapy, whereas discussion within an experienced team is key to adequately select the most appropriate multidisciplinary strategies. The purpose of this article is to provide updated recommendations for the management of these patients.
