Lung Cancer

The lungs are neither symmetrical nor functionally identical. Lung cancer begins when the cells of a lung become abnormal and begin growing out of control. When the abnormal cancer cells grow, they can form into a tumor and even spread to other areas of the body (metastasize).

If you or someone you know has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer, gathering information about the disease is can be very helpful. The medical oncologists and supportive care team at Affiliated Oncologists are experienced in lung cancer care and are here to help guide you through your cancer care journey.
