Lung Cancer Care
Lung cancer is the second most common cancer treated at MacNeal.
MacNeal physicians offer a full range of treatments for lung cancer, including chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. MacNeal medical oncologists, thoracic (lung) surgeons, radiation oncologists and pulmonologists (lung doctors) work closely together to ensure patients receive the best treatment or combination of treatments for their individual situation.
As part of your care team, you will see a medical oncologist from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) working exclusively at MacNeal. These physicians have access to many clinical trials of new treatments and protocols. If you qualify for participation in a clinical trial, your MacNeal physician will discuss this with you.
