Lung Cancer Screening Program

About 228,150 new cases of lung cancer will be diagnosed in the US in 2019.

Lung cancer is the second most common cancer in both men and women (not counting skin cancer), and the leading cause of cancer death among both men and women.

Unfortunately, by the time most lung cancers are detected, they have already spread widely and are at an advanced stage. This makes cancer difficult to treat or cure.

Harrington offers an Early Detection Lung Cancer Screening Program which can detect lung cancer at an earlier stage, often making the disease more treatable. Our program engages the patient with a collaborative team including physicians, surgeons, radiologists, oncologists and pulmonologists to detect, diagnose and collaborate on an individualized care plan.

Listen: Jean Comeau, RN, Navigator for our Early Detection Screening Program, talks about the guidelines and benefits.

In 2019, Harrington’s Lung Cancer Program earned Accreditation by the American College of Radiology, in addition to being a designated a Center of Excellence for the second year in a row by the Lung Cancer Alliance.
