Lung cancer is the second most common cancer (PDF) and the leading cause of death by cancer. The earlier your disease is found, the better your odds of a complete recovery. If you smoke, get help with our smoking cessation program through Sutter Walk-In Care. Sutter Health is also saving lives with a new lung cancer screening program for smokers and former smokers of high risk. Contact CPMC’s Cancer Center at (888) 637-2762 to schedule a screening.
If your doctor suspects you may have lung cancer due to an abnormal chest X-ray or sputum test, we will waste no time in diagnosing and treating your disease, providing the support you need to focus on the cure. Suspicious findings are evaluated by care teams who participate in multidisciplinary tumor boards and lung nodule programs.
