Health Talk Podcast: Lung Cancer
Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer-related death in men and women. Unfortunately, symptoms of lung cancer don’t always show until advanced stages of cancer, when treatment options are limited. Recent medical research has shown, however, that screening high-risk individuals — especially those with a lifelong history of tobacco use — can dramatically improve survival rates by as much as 20 percent.
This episode of Health Talk by TriHealth features lung cancer survivor Thomas Armstead, and his TriHealth team - primary care physician Chad Dunkle, MD and cardiothoracic surgeon R. Douglas Adams, MD, who plays a key role in TriHealth’s lung cancer screening program. They discuss Tom’s care the vital role of lung cancer screening in helping patients like him survive the disease.
