Your best chance at beating cancer is early detection. If you are at high risk for developing lung cancer, consider getting a screening. For more information or to schedule a lung cancer screening, please call (985) 850-6052.
Our Lung Cancer Multidisciplinary Care Team is aiming to reduce
the number of cancer deaths by providing lung cancer screenings for high-risk individuals. When caught early, about 80 to 90 percent of lung cancer cases are curable, according to the New England Journal of Medicine. The Lung Team is composed of specialists to ensure the highest quality, individualized care for every patient.
