Lung cancer

Also known as: Cancer, lung
Lung cancer starts when abnormal cells grow out of control in the lung. They can invade nearby tissues and form tumors. Lung cancer can start anywhere in the lungs and affect any part of the respiratory system. The cancer cells can spread, or metastasize, to the lymph nodes and other parts of the body.
Providence Thoracic Oncology Program serves physicians and their patients who have cancers of the chest, including lung cancer.
