Lung cancer

Lung cancer is the most common form of cancer worldwide, and Kentucky leads the nation in lung cancer incidence and mortality. The UK Markey Cancer Center is working to reduce the burden of this disease through world-class care and compassion for people and families affected by it.

Markey’s Multidisciplinary Lung Cancer Program includes multiple oncology specialists who have a broad range of expertise in all aspects of lung cancer. Conditions treated include small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer, mesothelioma, thymoma, esophageal cancer, bronchial carcinoid and other thoracic cancers. Surgery, radiation and chemotherapy treatments are state-of-the-art, supplemented by national research studies as well as treatments with promising new drug regimens.

The UK Lung Cancer Screening Program is available for patients who might be at risk for lung cancer, including smokers and former smokers. Learn more about the program.
