Helping You Breathe Easy
Catch lung cancer early and get expert treatment.
Lung Nodule Clinics
More people are being diagnosed with pulmonary (lung) nodules, which are round or oval growths in the lungs. Also known as spots or lesions, lung nodules may be benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous).
To ensure that those at risk for developing lung nodules receive early diagnosis and treatment, our team has developed an innovative approach: our Lung Nodule Clinics. Early detection and treatment of cancerous lung nodules is critical, because treatment is more successful when lung cancer is discovered in its early stages.
