Lung Cancer Treatment Information for Residents of Fort Myers, FL
If you live in Fort Myers, Florida, and have received a diagnosis of lung cancer, don’t rely on the expertise of just one physician. Instead, visit Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. In a single location, patients within our Thoracic Oncology Program receive comprehensive treatment from a multispecialty team of medical oncologists, thoracic surgeons, pulmonologists, radiation oncologists and other experts who focus exclusively on treating lung malignancies. Our team also includes supportive care professionals – such as dietitians, counselors and social workers – to help patients cope with the challenges of a lung cancer diagnosis.
In addition to our multispecialty approach to treatment, there are several reasons why patients from throughout the state and across the nation choose to travel to Moffitt for lung cancer treatment. Here are just a few:
- Our specialists within our lung cancer program have an unparalleled level of experience treating even the rarest lung malignancies, including small cell lung cancers.
- Moffitt’s tumor board – a multispecialty team of cancer experts – collaborates to design individualized treatment plans for each and every patient. These plans are refined as necessary according to the patient’s progress and health care needs.
- Moffitt is a global leader in lung cancer research, and our patients have access to the latest breakthroughs in treatment before they are made available elsewhere through our robust clinical trials program. Our commitment to advancing cancer treatment has earned us the distinction of being a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center – the only one based in Florida.

That’s why we have partnered with several nearby hotels to offer discounted rates to patients traveling to Moffitt from Fort Myers, FL, and throughout the country.
