Why have I been referred to the Lung Nodule Clinic?
A lung nodule was found on a CT scan of your chest.
What is a lung nodule?
It is a small irregularity (“a spot”) within the lung tissue. There are two types of lung nodules: non-cancerous (benign) and cancerous (malignant).
Do I have cancer?
Having a lung nodule does not mean that you have cancer.
Why is it important to evaluate pulmonary nodules?
Often, lung nodules are non-cancerous. However, some lung nodules may be an early developing cancer, which can be cured if it is found early and surgically removed.
What is the Lung Nodule Clinic?
At the Lung Nodule Clinic, our team of pathologists, radiologists, pulmonologists, oncologists, and surgeons work together to provide a fast diagnosis and efficient management of lung nodules.
What is the benefit of having a team of specialists?
Your team of physicians will review your CT scan images, discuss the findings, and together, coordinate the next steps in managing the lung nodule. If your nodule needs to be treated, there will be no delay in treatment.
