Most frequently caused by smoking, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States. It occurs as small cell or non-small cell lung cancer, with the latter being most common. Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that affects the mesothelium, a thin layer of tissue that surrounds most internal organs. It most frequently occurs on the tissue around the lungs, referred to as the pleura. As a collaborative healthcare partner, St. Luke’s Health combines compassion with advanced care to support patients with lung cancer or mesothelioma throughout their journeys to better health.
