Abstract

As is the case with younger patients, the treatment decisions for elderly patients with thoracic tumours are primarily based on the results of the usual routine diagnostics. Standardised assessments of existing comorbidities and geriatric assessments may provide information which are of particular relevance for intensive and/or complex therapy modalities and which may require early corresponding intervention or measures for support.
