The following conditions are some of the most common conditions treated by our lung and esophageal specialists.
Most lung cancer begins in the cells that line the bronchial tubes that carry air from the trachea down into the lungs.
There are many layers to the esophagus, which is important in understanding the two types of this cancer
Squamous cell carcinoma
Mesothelioma is a tumor of the tissue that lines your lungs, stomach, heart or other organs. These tumors can be malignant (cancerous) or benign (not cancerous).
Soft tissue sarcomas are cancerous tumors that begin in the muscle, fat, nerves, tendons, blood vessels or connective tissues.
Myasthenia gravis is characterized by weakness and fatigue of any of the muscles under your voluntary control.
Myasthenia gravis is caused by a breakdown in the normal communication between nerves and muscles. Emergency treatment is needed to provide assistance with breathing. Medications and blood-filtering therapies help people to again breathe on their own.
These tumors are rare growths of soft tissue cells that can form nearly anywhere in the body but most often occur in the lining around the outside of the lungs (pleural solitary fibrous tumors).
A benign tumor of the lung is a non-cancerous growth that does not spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body and is not usually life-threatening.
