Lung Cancer Surgery for Patients in Clearwater, FL

Lung cancer surgery is often the best treatment option for lung cancer patients in Clearwater, Florida, especially for those whose cancer has not spread beyond the original tumor site. Lung cancer surgery is performed to remove as much of the tumor as possible, which means that it is sometimes necessary to also remove surrounding healthy tissue and nearby lymph nodes. In the event that some cancerous cells remain in the body after surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy may be recommended.
