If you have recently been told you have or are suspected of having lung cancer or mesothelioma, you will have already met some of the people involved in your care. These health professionals work within a team which is called a specialist Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) which is based here. The members of the lung MDT are experts at treating and managing lung malignancies. They are involved with your investigations, diagnosis and treatment.
- Lung Cancer
Treatment for lung cancer and mesothelioma may include a combination of surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy. A personalised treatment plan will depend on the extent and location of the cancer at diagnosis.
Your consultant and other members of the respiratory team are specialists in lung conditions. They will provide you with information about your diagnostic investigations and diagnosis and will refer you to other specialist teams for treatment.
A Clinical Nurse Specialist will be your key worker, providing you with help, support and information at the time of your diagnosis and during your treatment or care as needed.
