Survivors of childhood and young adult cancer are at risk for developing subsequent malignant neoplasms, including lung cancer. As survival rates in this group continue to improve and patients enter later decades in life, determining the optimal surveillance and counseling strategies with regards to subsequent cancers remains a challenge. In this case report, we present a non-Hodgkin lymphoma survivor who was incidentally found to have non-small-cell lung cancer 30 years after undergoing treatment that included mantle radiation. We discuss the treatment-related risk factors for lung cancer in this population and potential implications for long-term follow-up.
