Virtual Issue

Thoracic cancers (lung cancer, breast cancer, esophageal cancer, etc.) are the most common cancers and the leading causes of cancer death in China. In this issue, the National Cancer Center of China released the epidemiological data on thoracic cancers in China, which could reflect the current status and trends of these cancers in China.
