One in 16 people will develop lung cancer in their life. Lung cancer is the leading cause of death from cancer – higher than breast, colon or prostate. Lung cancer can now be found earlier and treated with less invasive methods! By finding and treating lung cancer earlier, people are surviving lung cancer and living longer and healthier lives. Come meet our new lung and heart surgery specialist, Dr. Jennifer Wan – one of only 300 board certified women cardiothoracic surgeons in the nation – as she shares new information about lung cancer you need to know.
