Lung cancer affects the lungs, the organs responsible for the respiratory functions of the body. While people who smoke are at a greater risk of lung cancer, it can also develop in individuals who have never smoked. Quitting smoking can significantly lower the chances of developing lung cancer. People at a higher risk of developing lung cancer are recommended to schedule annual screenings using low-dose CT scans.

Treatment of lung cancer depends on the overall health of the patient and the type and stage of cancer. Our experienced medical professionals offer the latest treatments to effectively relieve symptoms and treat cancer.
While some lung cancer cases may be treated with the help of drug therapies, more complex cases may require other therapies and even surgical intervention to provide lasting results. These may include:
