Lung Mass Removal
The most common surgical procedure for diseases that occur in the lungs is currently associated with the presence of lung cancer. The majority of patients who present to their physician with the first diagnosis of lung cancer are not surgical candidates because the disease is able to spread insidiously to other organ systems in the body.
However, when staging of the lung cancer confirms that it is confined to the lung and has not spread elsewhere, surgical removal of the cancer offers the best possibility of a cure. Dr. Bell-Thomson will be able to discuss the indications, risks, benefits and alternatives to lung cancer surgery with you at length.
