Our team of experts treats patients with tumors of the lungs, chest wall, trachea, esophagus, mediastinum, and heart.
Specializing in lung, mediastinum, trachea, and chest wall tumors
The Lung Cancer Program, a cooperative endeavor between Huntsman Cancer Institute and the University of Utah Health Sciences Center, offers consultation, diagnosis, and treatment for cancers of the lungs, chest wall, trachea, and mediastinum. The program’s multidisciplinary team of specialists, including thoracic surgeons, medical oncologists, pulmonologists, pathologists, radiation oncologists and radiologists, provides consultations along with diagnostic and therapeutic services to patients.
The Lung Cancer Program’s goal is to provide an individualized treatment plan for every patient with confirmed or suspected tumors within the chest. Collaboration and consultation of team members from oncology, surgery, radiology, pathology, and pulmonology specialties accomplishes this goal.
Treatments are individualized for each patient and may include one or a combination of the following:
- Radiation (also called radiotherapy)
- Clinical trials
