More than 225,000 Americans are diagnosed with lung cancer each year. Treatment depends on the type and stage of lung cancer and may include one or more treatments, including surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or targeted drug therapy.
Malignant (Cancer) Esophageal Disease
Cancer of the esophagus occurs when normal cells in the esophagus change into abnormal cells that grow out of control. Early on in the process, patients may have no symptoms or might have trouble swallowing, weight loss, pain or burning in the chest area. Many of these symptoms can be caused by other conditions that are not cancer. If you have any of these symptoms, please discuss them with your physician or nurse. Our team will provide assistance and coordination of care with early diagnosis and treatment including surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.
Pleural Malignant Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that can affect the lining of body organs, and is often caused by asbestos exposure. The most common type of mesothelioma is that of the pleura, or lining of the lung. In collaboration with Brigham and Women's Hospital, we offer comprehensive evaluations and assistance with diagnosing Mesothelioma.
