One-Stop Lung Cancer Clinic

The One-Stop Lung Cancer Clinic provides an opportunity for you and those closest to you, together with the doctors and nurses involved in your care, to consider what form of treatment will suit you best.

Often, a person is diagnosed with a lung cancer that could be treated in several different ways. For example, lung cancer can sometimes be treated with:

  • Surgery to remove the cancer, or;
  • Radiotherapy which uses beams of radiation directed into the lungs to destroy the cancer

It is also often the case that one treatment is not significantly better than another treatment. So, it is important that your medical team helps you to understand the different treatments and the different advantages and disadvantages of each treatment.

It is very important to say, when lung cancer has been caught early then both surgery and radiotherapy are very effective treatments with very high success rates.

During your time with us in the clinic, we want provide you with clear and easy to understand information about your treatment options so that we can decide together which treatment will suit you best.

It is not for us to tell which treatment you can or can’t have, but instead to support you to make the right decision for you. To help you with this, there may be a lot of information to discuss. You may also meet several different doctors and nurses.

The results of all the different tests you have already had, along with some further tests to be completed on the day of your clinic visit, will be reviewed by our team and discussed with you.
