In this chapter, we highlight the evolution of pathways for patients with suspected undiagnosed lung cancer from presentation to treatment in the 20th Century. We focus on the pathway which is currently in progress in the UK as well as some of the developed countries. We discuss the pros and cons of the system and we then propose a concept of a Lung Cancer Unit within Primary Care, City/Region and a Supra Regional Centre for lung cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Keywords: Concept of organisation of lung cancer pathway from presentation to treatment, Primary Care Unit Regional Centre and Supra Regional Centres for lung cancer as a vision for the future.
