If you are seeking treatment for metastatic lung cancer, you may be feeling confused or overwhelmed about your next steps. Moffitt Cancer Center is here to help. We serve lung cancer patients from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and throughout the country at our center in Tampa. Focusing exclusively on lung malignancies, the multispecialty team of physicians in our Thoracic Oncology Program have a unique level of experience addressing even the most complex metastasized lung cancers. This rare expertise, combined with Moffitt’s individualized approach to treatment, translates directly into more positive outcomes and enhanced quality of life for our patients.
Treatment for metastatic lung cancer will vary according to the patient’s overall health and where the cancer has spread. Various targeted drug therapies, radiation therapy, chemotherapy or immunotherapy may be used to slow or stop the spread of disease in the body. Moffitt’s lung cancer experts develop individualized treatment plans that accommodate each patient’s specific diagnosis and symptoms.
Does Moffitt offer clinical trials for lung cancer?
Moffitt stands at the forefront of metastatic lung cancer research and treatment. Eligible patients in our lung cancer program can benefit from one or more of our clinical trials, which provide access to the latest breakthroughs in lung cancer treatment before they are made widely available.
At Moffitt, we believe that metastatic lung cancer treatment is not strictly clinical. Enhancing each patient’s quality of life is another major focus of our lung cancer program. Our team includes counselors, nutritionists, social workers, yoga instructors and other professionals who provide key supportive care services in the same location as treatment.
If you plan on traveling to Moffitt from Ft. Lauderdale, we encourage you to take advantage of reduced rates at our partner hotels. These hotels are located near our cancer center and are in compliance with Moffitt’s strict hygiene standards.
