Lung Cancer
Lung cancer is a group of cancers that develop in the lung. Smoking is a common cause of lung cancer, but about 25% of cases occur in people who have never smoked.

The specialists at Stanford Health Care are experts in diagnosing and treating all types of lung cancer. People from around the world come to us for our multispecialty team, advanced treatment options, and compassionate care. Our lung cancer (“thoracic”) surgeons focus their practices on lung cancer – they are not unspecialized “CT surgeons” who also do cardiac surgery.
