Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is the second most common cancer found in both men and women.  It follows closely behind prostate cancer for men and breast cancer for women.

Doctors and other healthcare professionals at The Medical Center of Aurora can help to diagnose lung cancer, provide a second opinion, stage your cancer (determine how much it has spread), plan for treatment and offer support. Our lung specialists work with you and your family to develop a treatment plan that is both effective and aggressive.

We treat the following types of lung cancer:

  • Non-small cell lung cancer
  • Small cell lung cancer

In many cases, lung cancer is found in older adults because it is a slow growing cancer. Treatment usually includes a combination of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Treatment plans are individualized and based on your specific health history and physical condition. We promise you that we will work with you to determine what is appropriate.
