Lung Cancer

Overview

Lung cancer is the third most common cancer in men and women. In the U.S., one in 16 people will develop the disease, which means more than 234,000 new cases are diagnosed each year.

Lung cancer is divided into two types: small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. Small cell almost always develops in people who are or were heavy smokers. Non-small cell is an umbrella term for several types of lung cancers that function in the same way: squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma and large cell carcinoma.

The Patricia Lynch Cancer Center at Holy Name has a multi-disciplinary team of experienced and skilled surgical oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, nurses and support staff to diagnose and treat lung cancer. Together they provide a compassionate, unified approach in creating a personal strategy for each patient's unique medical, emotional and lifestyle needs.
