The perfect candidate for surgery should have a confined to the chest disease with T3N0M0 staging. Inoperable patient with severe pain after irradiation therapy may benefit from palliative surgical resection. Medical therapy plays only a secondary role in lung cancers, patients with disseminated lung cancer might require palliative treatment and medical management of paraneoplastic syndrome symptoms. Following surgery, radiation and chemotherapy may improve local and systemic control by addressing individual adverse findings.The cooperation of surgeons, clinicians and radiologists represents the gold standard today and a multidisciplinary approach is essential to achieve the best outcome possible. Further studies are advisable in order to define the best surgical approach and the real advantage of mini-invasive surgery by comparison with open surgery.
