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.
