Meet our lung cancer experts.
More people die from lung cancer than any other type of cancer. At Johns Hopkins, our goal is to reduce that number every year, working toward a day when no one will die from lung cancer.
At the Lung Cancer Program, we focus on preventing, screening for, diagnosing and treating lung cancer in ways that give our patients the best possible prognosis.
