Topic: Lung Cancer Awareness Month
November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month and if taking a deep breath is hard for you, know that there are new ways to detect and fight lung cancer. The number one cause of cancer related deaths in both men and women is lung cancer. Until recently, there has been no reliable way to detect lung cancer in its most treatable stage. But now, with the use of low dose CT Scanning, early detection is possible! People at high risk, especially those with a significant smoking history should be screened every year. When lung cancer is found in its early stages, minimally invasive treatment may be an option. At Main Line Health we perform video and robotic assisted surgeries that can result in less pain and faster recovery and we offer state of the art photo dynamic therapy and radiation therapy options that destroy cancer cells without surgery!
