High Risk Lung Cancer Screening




If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with lung cancer, Sentara has the resources to help. Sentara Cancer Network brings both leading-edge treatment and demonstrated results to patients with cancer.

Lung cancer is the most common form of cancer worldwide for men and the fifth most common form in women. However, it is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths among both genders. Fortunately, it is also one of the most preventable kinds of cancer. Most cases of lung cancer are associated with tobacco smoking.

At Sentara, our physicians work as a team to provide comprehensive care, from diagnosis to recovery.

Why choose Sentara?

 The Sentara Cancer Network approaches thoracic (lung) cancer with a multidisciplinary team of: pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, subspecialized pathologists and radiologists, radiation oncologists and rehabilitation experts.

These physicians collaborate and share cases via a multidisciplinary cancer conference (tumor board) to develop the best selection of care and treatment for individual patient needs.

The Sentara Cancer Network is the only network program in Virginia to earn accreditation from the American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer.

Sentara is a leader in advanced thoracic care. For instance, Sentara was the first in the region to perform induction chemotherapy followed by resection for advanced lung care.

 Sentara introduced CyberKnife Radiosurgery services to the region, for less invasive surgery of tumors of the lung.
