We are open.
We are clean.
We are ready.

Holy Name Medical Center is happy to announce that we have begun our return to normal operations. You may wonder, Is the hospital safe? Yes. We are ready. Ready to partner with you and your family on all your healthcare needs.

Holy Name is the first hospital in North Jersey to complete a rigorous, deep cleaning of our 450,000 square feet of clinical and non-clinical space. We started with manual disinfection, then applied electrostatic sanitizing mist, and finally, blasted UV-C light to kill more than 30 types of pathogens — including Covid-19.

Symptoms & Risk Factors

Symptoms

In its early stages, lung cancer typically doesn't have any symptoms. As the disease progresses, it may cause:

  • Persistent cough
  • Coughing up blood
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Hoarseness
  • Weight loss without trying

Causes

Smoking is the number one cause of lung cancer, in smokers and those exposed to secondhand smoke. Between 80 and 90 percent of lung cancers are caused by smoking cigarettes and other tobacco products such as cigars and pipes. But for some people with lung cancer, the cause is unknown.

Risk Factors

In addition to smoking, other conditions may increase the risk of developing lung cancer.

  • Exposure to secondhand smoke
  • Exposure to radon, a natural gas from rocks and dirt that can get into homes and commercial buildings
  • Exposure to asbestos and other carcinogens such as arsenic, chromium and nickel
  • Family history – a parent, sibling or child who had lung cancer
