Lung cancer often takes several years to develop and is rare in people under 45 years of age. However, lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer-related death for men and women, outnumbering colon, breast and prostate cancers combined.
Dignity Health's Lung & Esophageal Program in Sacramento focuses on providing the best possible outcomes with multispecialty care for patients diagnosed with even the most complex cases of lung cancer.
Using superDimension® bronchoscopy—a GPS-like navigation system—our surgeons can steer a small catheter through the mouth or nose, down the trachea and far into the lung to locate and biopsy suspicious lesions without open surgery.
Other lung cancer diagnostic and treatment methods we offer at Dignity Health include:
