Where lung cancer is concerned, early detection can mean the difference between a positive or negative prognosis. Knowing this, we've developed a low-cost, early detection program for those at high risk of lung cancer. Our program includes a low-dose, lung CT screening that has proven to detect 85 percent of early-stage lung cancers. When advisable, the Kettering Cancer Care team is also here to perform a PET scan, biopsy, bronchoscopy and other procedures to determine if something suspicious is actually lung cancer.
The symptoms of lung cancer take years to develop, making it critical to have an experienced team on your side for diagnosis. Kettering Health Network offers the diagnostic services you need, such as biopsy or bronchoscopy, along with support services to provide the educational and emotional tools to help manage your diagnosis and subsequent treatment.
