About Lung Cancer

It’s often caused by exposure to tobacco, though there are rising numbers of patients being diagnosed with lung cancer who have never smoked or been exposed to secondhand smoke.

Our expert team of doctors uses the most effective, leading-edge therapies to treat patients with lung cancer and other thoracic malignancies such as:

  • Carcinoid tumors
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Lung cancer, including small cell lung cancer, non-small cell lung cancer and malignant mesothelioma
  • Mediastinum tumors in the sternum and/or surrounding area between the lungs
  • Metastatic cancer involving the lung
  • Thymic tumors

  • Gene expression assays
  • Genomic tumor profiling
  • MRI (magnetic resonance imaging)

Your care team works with you to design a treatment plan that fits your needs. Your personalized treatment plan depends on unique factors, from your diagnosis to your personal preferences. Your local doctors meet weekly with other regional experts to discuss your case.
