Lung Cancer Center, Phoenix

Lung cancer care, the City of Hope way

Cancer won’t wait

Lung cancer is the third-most common cancer in America and kills more Americans each year than the other three most common cancers—breast, prostate and colorectal—combined. But with screening, early detection and innovative treatment options, more lung cancer patients are living longer than ever before. At the Lung Cancer Center at City of Hope Phoenix, our team of experts will work with you and your primary care physician to offer screening and diagnostic tests to determine whether you have lung cancer. If tests confirm a diagnosis, we’ll recommend a comprehensive, personalized lung cancer treatment plan, in consultation with you and your home doctor, carefully transitioning you back to his or her care when your treatment is complete. At City of Hope Phoenix, consultations and treatments are available in days, not weeks.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) is now City of Hope®, joining forces to expand patient access to personalized, comprehensive cancer care.

Your treatment options

At the Lung Cancer Center at City of Hope Phoenix, our singular focus on lung cancer puts our oncologists, pulmonologists and other experts at the leading edge of new and emerging treatments, including:

Artificial intelligence (AI) technology that assists doctors in determining whether a lung nodule may be malignant and needs immediate attention. Early detection helps doctors develop treatment options that are better positioned to produce positive outcomes.

Advanced robotic surgery techniques that make it possible for your thoracic surgeon to perform less aggressive procedures, such as a segmentectomy, which removes less of the lung than a lobectomy. Your team may also include a reconstructive surgeon trained and experienced in repairing and reconstructing the chest wall and restoring physical function and appearance impacted by the cancer and/or surgery.

Precision medicine drugs, such as immunotherapy and targeted therapy, that give doctors an arsenal of treatment strategies that may offer better outcomes and lesser side effects than chemotherapy. Your team of lung cancer experts collaborate daily, all under one roof, conducting a clinical review of your cancer to quickly develop a detailed treatment plan designed specifically for you and your needs and diagnosis. Your care team at City of Hope Phoenix will also communicate and coordinate with your doctor back home, providing seamless care before, during and after your treatment.

Lung Cancer

"Just walking into the center, I got such a positive first impression. I got a sense of hope as soon as I walked through the doors. I felt nervous excitement radiate through me. And later on, when I talked to other patients, they experienced the same feeling and sensation. Everybody's friendly, they greet you warmly, and you just feel secure. I felt like I was in the right place for me. I just had this feeling that good things were going to happen.
