Lung Cancer Care

If you’ve been diagnosed with lung cancer, you are not alone. Lung cancer is the second most common cancer among men and women. Advances in screening and treatment are leading to better outcomes and a stronger understanding of this disease.

The team at PeaceHealth is committed to providing a full spectrum of care — from diagnosis and surgery to treatment and support — for you and your family.

No two lung cancers or patients are alike. PeaceHealth offers a wide range of care and treatment for many types of lung cancers so you can get the treatment you want and need.

Early detection leads to better results

Advances in lung cancer screening are helping doctors detect cancer in its early stages. This allows our patients to begin treatments sooner and may lead to better outcomes. Talk to your doctor today about your risk of lung cancer.

Guiding you along your path

Cancer is a journey that should never be taken alone. Our nurse navigators are here to answer your questions, help you understand your diagnosis and treatment plan, and schedule doctor appointments and tests.

An integrated approach to care

Better outcomes often come from a holistic approach to care. PeaceHealth offers a team of specialists across all disciplines — from oncology to radiation, nutrition to rehabilitation — who work closely together to make sure you get the care you need.

Collaborating for you

No two cancers or patients are alike. That’s why we put you at the center of treatment plans — your needs, goals, unique cancer diagnosis and medical and family history. Your care team is committed to delivering compassionate care that helps you feel stronger, better and supported throughout your journey.

Research and clinical trials

PeaceHealth Cancer Centers offer patients participation in national research studies which afford them access to the latest research into new approaches for treating cancer. Your doctor can help determine if there may be a clinical trial or research study right for you.

Treatments Provided

Cancer rehabilitation

Cancer treatment sometimes causes side effects. These may include trouble concentrating, lymphedema (swelling caused by lymph fluid buildup), chronic pain or weakened muscles. PeaceHealth offers a wide range of rehabilitation services to help you manage these problems and regain your strength.

Rehab therapy may include:

  • Physical or occupational therapy – Programs can help improve function and mobility, adapt to lifestyle changes after surgery and rebuild strength.
  • Lymphedema therapy – Certified specialists offer personalized support to help improve circulation and your range of motion.
  • Feeding and swallowing therapy – Therapy to help you get back to easily chewing and swallowing food.
  • Specialized rehabilitation – Therapy tailored to your needs and goals. This may include pulmonary rehab, cardiac rehab, balance and vestibular (inner ear) therapy or incontinence (bladder control) therapy.
  • Neuropsychology – Testing and therapies to help improve concentration, thinking and focus.
  • Wound care – Specialized care and help to manage surgery scars and wounds. This may include removing scar tissue (resection), hyperbaric oxygen therapy and others.

Cancer screening

Regular cancer screening can mean early detection — and a better chance for survival. We offer the latest screening technologies for breast cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer and more.

Endoscopic procedures and biopsies
Advances in colorectal screenings allow doctors to remove and study tissue samples during colonoscopies and sigmoidoscopies. This can help lower the number of procedures you need.
