Through early detection, our screening program can save the lives of persons at high risk for lung cancer. The St. John’s Regional Cancer Center’s early detection lung cancer program is accredited by the American College of Radiology and is Ventura County’s first lung cancer screening program to receive the Lung Cancer Alliance Screening Center of Excellence designation. Using the latest advances in low-dose high-resolution CT scans, our specialists are able to detect cancer even before symptoms become noticeable. In 2018, 79 high-risk persons received lung cancer screening and follow-up. Two were found to have early-stage lung cancer.
When dealing with a cancer diagnosis, we know how hard it can be to coordinate the various aspects of your care. At St. John’s hospitals, we offer various classes (nutrition, fitness, and therapy) and programs to help you fight against cancer. We also provide resources and support groups to family members. All services are complimentary.
Every year, the Cancer Center publishes an Annual Report designed to build community awareness of our cancer services. The report is an overview of the cancer program, as well as data on specific cancer tumor sites.
