Abstract

In patients with a history of HD, survival after the development of lung carcinoma is poor. Because surgical resection can lead to long-term survival, early detection is crucial. HD survivors, especially those with a history of smoking, should undergo careful surveillance for second primary lung carcinomas and other diseases. Patients who are diagnosed with HD should abstain from smoking. Physicians should assess specifically the smoking status of all HD patients and prescribe a smoking cessation program.
