Lung cancer is a malignant tumour that happens in the tissue of one or both lungs.

The Lung Cancer Stream provides multidisciplinary care including diagnosis and treatment for cancers of the lung, thymus and mesothelioma. Clinics are held  5 days a week, and are staffed by physicians, surgeons, radiation oncologists and medical oncologists, all of whom are recognised for their particular expertise in lung and the other thoracic cancers. Recognising that the best survival results and highest levels of patient satisfaction are achieved by treatment teams with extensive experience, each clinic is dedicated exclusively to these diseases.

In addition to multidisciplinary consultations, a comprehensive range of lung cancer services are provided, including blood tests, ultrasound scan, radiotherapy including advanced  intensity modulated radiotherapy, and medical oncology treatments including chemotherapy. The team also includes dedicated lung cancer nurse specialists and other healthcare experts who can provide support for patients during their treatment, with a particular focus on their social and psychological needs linked to their cancer diagnosis.

All new patients and difficult cases are discussed at one of two weekly multidisciplinary meetings attended by a full range of lung cancer experts in addition to the members of the treating team.
