Lung

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 at the NNUH. The members of our Lung MDT are experts at treating and managing Lung malignancies and are involved with your investigations, diagnosis and treatment.

Conditions treated:

  • Lung Cancer
  • Mesothelioma

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.
