The Cancer Centers at Affinity Health System have a team of lung cancer experts to help patients fight the disease.
Lung cancer kills more men and women than any other form of cancer—almost a third of all cancer deaths are from lung cancer. Since most lung cancers begin to grow without any symptoms, many diagnoses are made at a relatively late stage. The Cancer Centers at Affinity Health System have a team of lung cancer experts to help patients fight the disease.
Because about 80 percent of lung cancer cases are due to tobacco smoke, Affinity Health System offers a free program to help you quit tobacco. Call Affinity NurseDirect to register for the Call It Quits program at 1-800-362-9900.
