Lung Cancer Care at Inspira Health

Whether you are a current or former smoker, have a family history of lung cancer or have been exposed to agents known to cause lung cancer, you may be at higher risk of lung cancer.

Lung cancer survival rates are improving, especially when cancer is caught at an early stage. Screening for small masses of abnormal tissue in the lungs, known as lung nodules, can help detect cancer cells before they spread. Our program follows criteria established by the National Lung Cancer Screening Trial, which found that screening for lung cancer using low-dose CT scans can lower mortality rates by 20 percent.

Inspira’s commitment to improving patient outcomes includes a Lung Cancer Screening Center of Excellence and advanced, image-guided diagnostic procedures. Treatments for lung cancer at Inspira include minimally invasive surgical procedures shown to reduce discomfort and recovery time.

Each of our cancer centers has a patient-centered infusion site for advanced chemotherapy treatments as well as state-of-the-art technology for radiation therapy. This ensures the best care for patients with lung cancer at any stage.
