Lung cancer is the second most common cancer in the United States and the leading cause of cancer deaths among both men and women. It is responsible for 25% of all cancer deaths, more than deaths from breast, colon and prostate cancers combined. It is also a silent killer, since most patients don't exhibit any symptoms until the cancer is very advanced.
UM Capital Region Health offers the latest screening techniques that are designed to detect lung cancer before the patient experiences any symptoms, which increases treatment options and improves survival rates.
