If you have been diagnosed with late-stage (metastatic) lung cancer, it’s important to find a cancer center that offers the latest developments in treatment and well-rounded supportive care. Located just a few hours away from Fort Myers, Florida, Moffitt Cancer Center features a Thoracic Oncology Program that does just that. Our program is led by a multispecialty team of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, pulmonologists, lung surgeons and other professionals who focus exclusively on lung malignancies and have a unique level of experience in addressing even the most uncommon and difficult-to-treat cancers.
Treating and managing late-stage lung cancer
Moffitt’s lung cancer program focuses on achieving the best possible outcomes and enhanced quality of life by merging traditional treatment approaches with the latest clinical advances, such as immunotherapy, photodynamic therapy and radiofrequency ablation. Additionally, patients who participate in our clinical trial program have access to breakthroughs in treatment before such options are made widely available. And, because we understand that late-stage cancer can affect a patient’s life in many ways, our team includes counselors, social workers, dietitians, pain management specialists and other professionals who are available to help our patients navigate the emotional and physical challenges that can accompany treatment.
At Moffitt, we know that traveling from Fort Myers to receive late-stage lung cancer treatment may present a few logistical challenges. To make the process a bit easier, we offer all our services in one location. Additionally, our partner hotels offer reduced lodging rates to our out-of-town patients and their families. These hotels are committed to providing a hygienic, comfortable and welcoming environment for our patients to rest and spend time with their loved ones.
