Lung cancer is by far the leading cause of cancer death among both men and women; about one out of four cancer deaths are from lung cancer. Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS). Surgery to remove the cancer, often along with other treatments, may be an option for certain types of lung cancer. Here to discuss lung cancer surgery options at Manatee Memorial Hospital is John C. Brock, MD. He is a Board certified Cardio Thoracic Surgeon, and a member of the medical staff at Manatee Memorial Hospital.
