Cleveland Clinic lung cancer specialists are nationally recognized for diagnosing and treating lung and chest cancers. Our team provides the newest medical and surgical treatment options available for lung cancer today with survival rates of patients consistently five to 20 percent higher than the national average.
Lung Nodule Clinic
Any patient with a lung nodule discovered by their physician on CT imaging or chest x-ray can be referred to our Lung Nodule Clinic. Patients will meet with physician assistants, pulmonologists, and sometimes, thoracic surgeons, who have extensive knowledge of lung nodule management. Our services include initial consultations, reviews of CT images, risk calculation and volumetric analysis of pulmonary nodules, surgical and non-surgical biopsies and advanced bronchoscopy with guided technology.
Lung Cancer Screening
Cleveland Clinic is now screening for lung nodules. The screening can help the physician and patient look for signs of lung cancer before the disease has caused someone to have symptoms. The goal of screening is to detect the disease early in its course, when it is easier to treat. Learn more about lung cancer screening.
