Dr Mark Doherty - Princess Margaret Hospital, Toronto, Canada

Dr Doherty talks to ecancertv at ESMO 2016 about the experience of lung cancer patients and their caregivers, based on a survey by Lung Cancer Canada.

Doherty focussed on the responses from caregivers.

Mood changes, fatigue, and loss of weight were sited as key problems, as well as the negative stigma attached to the diagnosis due to its association with smoking.
