Stage III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a heterogeneous disease that often elicits differing opinions regarding what is “unresectable”, depending upon the specialist and the treatment setting. Using survey data, we sought to characterize opinions regarding the resectability of stage III NSCLC.
