Lung cancer care

If you’re facing a lung cancer diagnosis, where you get treated matters. At Touro, we offer a comprehensive range of treatments and support services for our patients to improve outcomes. We’re also focused on preventing this debilitating disease in our community because prevention is the best approach. If you smoke or live with someone who does, you may be at risk of having lung cancer. Touro offers lung cancer screenings as well as our interventional pulmonology program and smoking cessation program. It’s time to take control of your lung health, and we’re here to help.

Interventional pulmonology program

Interventional pulmonology is used as a minimally invasive option for treating lung cancer and other serious non-malignant airway obstructions. Conditions in the lungs are diagnosed and treated using endoscopy and other tools. Interventional pulmonology treatment may be used to treat lung cancer, respiratory disease, and other symptoms such as coughing, chest pain, or shortness of breath. Our program can also treat those with lung and respiratory diseases, including obstructed airways, lung nodules and masses, pleural diseases, and enlarged or swollen lymph nodes.

Smoking cessation program

Taking preventative measures can go a long way in helping you avoid lung cancer. The best way to do so is with a successful smoking cessation program. Attend one of our free seminars where you’ll receive personalized support from our team of experts who are here to help you quit smoking for good.

At the end of the seminar, you’ll have the option to choose one of the following:

  • Sign up for a self-guided ALA program
  • An appointment with an Interventional Pulmonology Nurse Practitioner for one-on-one counseling
  • Opt for no further assistance

Lung cancer screenings

Even if you quit smoking years ago, you’re still at a higher risk of developing lung cancer. With nearly a quarter of a million new cases of lung cancer being diagnosed each year, it’s essential to detect the disease early on. Our lung cancer screening program is easy and painless. It takes less than a minute and can find lung cancer in its early stages when treatment has the best chance of success. Our lung cancer screenings are for patients who are 50 – 80 years old and have a 20 pack per year history of smoking. That means you smoked one pack a day for 20 years: number of packs of cigarettes smoked per day x number of years smoked. The screenings are for those who are current smokers or who have quit within the last 15 years. You’ll need an order from your primary care physician for a lung cancer screening.
