A 74 year old Caucasian man, presents with a 6 week history of right sided chest pain including traumatic related painful right shoulder. Shoulder minor contusion was diagnosed and partial managed by symptomatic treatment associated to rehabilitation. The pain was initially eased with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) use and finally changed worsening. He has evidence of moderate COPD on spirometry and has been commenced on inhalers. An invasive primitive adenocarcinoma lung cancer was confirmed by chest CT scan and lymphnode biopsy through mediastinoscopy

Lung cancer remains one of the most frequent pathologies in Pulmonology Departments. Tumor extension, histopathological types, and treatment influence the prognosis and survival in lung cancer. Five years survival dramatically decreases for the 4th-stage of the disease. Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) represents the vast majority of lung cancers. In the last decades, important findings have been made on identifying standardized molecular biomarkers that control tumor growth in lung adenocarcinoma. The discovery of new drugs led to the increased survival, even in extensive forms of the disease. The greatest advances could be obtained by targeting EGFR genetic mutations or EML4-ALK translocate in patients diagnosed with adenocarcinoma lung cancer
