Providing Expert Care in Pulmonary Oncology

Senior doctor and pateintWith approximately 200,000 fatalities per year, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States.

Lung cancer is considered an aggressive form of cancer, which means tumors often form and spread quickly beyond the lungs and into nearby tissue if left untreated. However, many tumors found in the lungs end up not being cancerous, which is why an accurate diagnosis is of the highest importance.

Accurate diagnostic screening is a primary area of focus at Deborah Heart and Lung Center’s Oncology Clinic. Our diverse, experienced team incorporates the skills and expertise of an oncologist, radiologist, pulmonologist, pathologist, surgeon, and clinical and administrative staff.

Deborah Oncology Clinic’s approach develops a “whole-patient” profile. Lung tumors are evaluated using the most advanced technologies including CT scans, bronchoscopy, endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS), and minimally-invasive video-assisted (VATS) biopsies. This technology is an effective tool in diagnosing and staging lung cancer, as well as detecting infections and inflammatory diseases in the lungs.

Should You Be Screened For Lung Cancer?

Lung cancer is cancer that originates in the lungs. There are two primary types: non-small cell lung cancer, which is the most common, and small cell lung cancer. Smoking, exposure to certain chemicals, and family history can all increase your risk for developing lung cancer.

The recommended screening test for lung cancer is low-dose computed tomography, also called a low-dose CT scan. This online risk assessment can help to determine if your family history, lifestyle, and any current symptoms make you an ideal candidate for more thorough screening.
