What is the Lung Nodule Program?

The program, developed by one of the largest academic thoracic surgical units in the country together with the pulmonologists and radiologists at Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP), is one of only a handful in the country and the first in the Philadelphia region.

The Lung Nodule Program addresses the growing number of patients being diagnosed with tiny round- or oval-shaped sore (called a lesion or nodule), on or in their lungs. The goal of the Lung Nodule Program is twofold: to save patients from unnecessary surgery, and to catch possible lung cancers early when they are most treatable.
