Complete care for lung and esophageal cancers.
About Lung and Esophageal Cancers
Cancer comes with many questions. Our experienced lung cancer specialists understand what you’re going through. We’re here to support you, starting with helping you understand your diagnosis.
Ascension’s oncologists, thoracic surgeons and care teams will listen to your concerns and answer your questions. Then, we work together with you to create a lung cancer care plan customized for you.
Specialized therapies to treat lung cancer
Because each cancer diagnosis is different, we’ll work with you to create a treatment plan that’s right for you. Your Ascension oncology care team will discuss with you all the therapy options for your diagnosis.
We are skilled in treating the range of lung cancers, including:
- Non-small-cell lung cancer.
- Small-cell lung cancer.
- Lung carcinoid tumors.
Your cancer care plan may include surgery, and some procedures are minimally invasive. Other treatment options include radiation, chemotherapy, targeted therapy (drugs aimed specifically at cancerous and cancer-causing cells) and precision medicine (medications based on your genetic makeup).
We’ll also help you focus on other ways to improve your health, like helping you quit smoking.
Compassion at the core of our cancer care
From day one, our lung cancer care teams are committed to supporting you along your cancer journey. Beyond just treatment, we’ll help you manage side effects and fatigue and provide encouragement for you and your loved ones. We’re here for you every step of the way.
