Evaluation of Lung Nodules / Masses

Lung cancer is the second most common cause of cancer in the United States for both men and women, and most common cause of cancer related death. The relatively asymptomatic nature of lung cancer can lead to higher incidence of advanced disease at time of diagnosis, with typically worse prognosis. As a result, 5-year survival rate for lung cancer patients in general is only 15%, whereas survival for patients diagnosed with early stage disease who undergo surgical resection is 85%.

Accordingly the US Preventive Services Task Force recommends low-dose CT scanning of the chest as a screening tool for those individuals at risk for developing lung cancer.

The Texas IPS Lung Nodule/Lung Cancer Clinic provides both lung cancer screening and direct pathways for diagnosis and treatment when necessary. We are firmly committed to the process of early detection and treatment of potential lung cancers for the members of our community.
