Lung Cancer

According to the National Cancer Institute, lung cancer is the second most common cancer in the United States and the leading cause of cancer deaths among men and women.

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 early, which increases the number of available treatment options and improves survival rates.
