Lung Cancer Program

Lung cancer is the second most common cancer in the U.S.—and the leading cause of cancer deaths. At Lancaster General Health/Penn Medicine we believe a team approach is the key to successful treatment. From prevention and advanced diagnostics to multidimensional treatment, and nurse navigators to guide you through it all, our dedicated professionals are advancing lung cancer care.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health’s Bureau of Health Statistics and Research reports that Lancaster County residents treated for lung cancer at LG Health/Penn Medicine have a better survival rate than the average survival rate across Pennsylvania.

 

A coordinated team of specialists

You are in the hands of a strong team of professionals focused on fighting lung cancer. We collaborate to create an individualized treatment plan for every person diagnosed with lung cancer. Team members meet with patients and their families to discuss recommendations and assist in making joint decisions about the plan of care.

  • Medical oncologists
  • Radiation oncologists
  • Surgeons
  • Pulmonologists
  • Primary care physicians
  • Nurse navigators
  • Dietitians
  • Social workers

Faster time to treatment

A weekly chest tumor board is a key component of our program. Experts in a variety of disciplines meet to review patient cases and develop recommendations. This means faster the time to treatment once a suspicious lesion is discovered.


Exceptional support

If you are facing a potential or confirmed diagnosis of lung cancer, you’ll appreciate the support available to you, including:

  • Nurse navigators who provide valuable assistance throughout your journey.
  • Supportive services, including home care and help with special needs.
  • Survivorship programs to maintain optimal health and wellness.
  • Pastoral and social work care.
  • Smoking cessation counselors.
