Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in both men and women in the United States. Smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke is one of the main causes of lung cancer; however, it is not the only risk factor. As a part of Lung Cancer Awareness Month this year, Thomas Hensing, MD, Medical Oncology at NorthShore, will answer questions on lung cancer, from risk and symptoms to treatment options and prognosis.

This chat was originally scheduled for Thursday, December 4th. We apologize for the inconvenience. It’s likely you’re on your feet for at least part of every day, so pain, especially in feet and ankles, can have a huge impact on your day-to-day life. Don’t live with pain or risk further injury by waiting to see if it goes away on its own. Lan Chen, MD, Orthopaedic Surgeon, will answer questions on foot and ankle pain, from when pain shouldn’t be ignored and how to prevent injury to surgical and non-surgical treatments for chronic pain or sudden foot and ankle injury. Submit your questions early.
