Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer-related death and the second most commonly diagnosed cancer among men and women in the United States. Lung cancers are classified as non-small cell (such as adenocarcinomas and squamous cell carcinomas) and small cell (which account for only 13 percent of lung cancers).

At the Weill Cornell Cancer Center at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, we take a multidisciplinary approach to the care of patients with lung cancer—bringing together a team of
  • surgeons
  • medical oncologists
  • radiation oncologists
  • pulmonologists
  • pathologists
  • radiologists
  • oncology nurses
  • psychosocial support specialists
  • other experts

The lung cancer program has developed into a leading international center of clinical excellence.

The team meets regularly to discuss challenging cases and to tailor the best course of care for each patient. Patient coordinators ensure the efficiency of each patient’s care so that treatment can begin as soon as possible.

In addition to providing state-of-the-art patient care, the program has been equally devoted to translational research on the premise that improvements in patient outcome and survival will only be achieved with a balanced research program. Patients are offered opportunities to participate in clinical trials of novel therapies for which they may be candidates.

The team of professionals at the Weill Cornell Cancer Center is committed to providing excellent care from the moment a patient comes through our doors.
