Radiation Oncologists Treating Lung Cancer

For some lung cancer patients, radiation therapy may be recommended as part of treatment before surgery to shrink a tumor first or after surgery to destroy any lung cancer cells that remain in the area. It is also commonly used for patients with primary or secondary cancer in the lung who are not candidates for traditional surgery. This radiation therapy is planned and administered by a radiation oncologist. At Compass Oncology, radiation oncologists and medical oncologists work together to treat each patient.

Our palliative care team works with your oncologist and other healthcare providers to help patients with preventing, managing, and relieving the symptoms of cancer and the side effects of treatment. Their role is to focus on treating physical issues as well as relieving stress, supporting your emotional, spiritual, and practical needs, and the needs of your loved ones and caregivers. Our lung cancer patients can receive palliative care at any stage of a cancer diagnosis and can help you and your loved ones better understand what to expect from the illness and treatment, plan for the future, clarify your goals and expectations, and maintain your quality of life.
