This chapter examines the diagnosis and management of respiratory syndromes associated with malignant diseases and evaluates the supportive care needs of patients with primary thoracic cancers. Some of the common symptoms in patients with thoracic malignancy include dyspnoea, cough, and haemoptysis. Mild symptoms can be effectively managed by pharmacological methods, but for malignant ones radiotherapy and brachytherapy are recommended.

Keywords:   respiratory syndromes, malignant diseases, supportive care, thoracic cancers, dyspnoea, cough, haemoptysis, radiotherapy, brachytherapy
