Detecting Small Cell Lung Cancer
Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) offers a patient-centered approach to small cell lung cancer treatment which involves an entire team of cancer experts. Your care team at CTCA will present you with an individualized treatment plan consisting of innovative conventional treatments alongside complementary therapies. In order to fully assess your needs, your oncologist will order specific tests to examine the presence and extent of cancer.
To help your team make an accurate small cell lung cancer diagnosis, they may use several tests, including: a complete physical exam, advanced imaging tests and navigational bronchoscopy.
If your team detects small cell lung cancer in the body, they will stage the disease, which allows them to better understand its progression, and provides essential information toward determining the best treatment options available.
