Risk Factors

  • Department of:
  • Adena Regional Medical Center

More people die from lung cancer than prostate, breast, colon and rectal cancers combined. If left undetected until advanced stages, the prognosis for lung cancer is poor. That’s why Adena is dedicated to providing you with early detection, prompt management and advanced treatment for lung cancer.
