What is Cancer?


Lung Cancer

This type of cancer starts in the lungs with abnormal and erratic cell growth causing a tumour which in turn interferes with the normal, healthy function of the rest of the organ.

Lung cancer treatment has improved dramatically in recent years and treatment options include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy and often a combination of these treatments is used.

Being able to access a range of different treatment options at one location is very beneficial to patients and Hollywood Private Hospital has a range of specialists who specialise in treating this disease.
