OU Health Stephenson Cancer CenterLung Cancer Breakthroughs You Can Believe In

One of the most common cancers in the world, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Your risks for lung cancer increase with tobacco smoking, as well as exposure to high levels of pollution, radiation, or asbestos. But when lung cancer is detected early, there is hope. If you or a loved one experiences symptoms of lung cancer, such as wheezing, persistent coughing, hoarseness, chest infections, headaches, or loss of appetite, you’ll want to talk with the lung and thoracic cancer experts at OU Health Stephenson Cancer Center. As the leader in the state’s most comprehensive lung cancer care, Stephenson Cancer Center can provide the thorough, compassionate care you need—from advanced diagnostics to surgery.

At Stephenson Cancer Center, you’ll work with a highly trained team that’s dedicated to providing evidence-based prevention, detection, treatment, and research for lung cancer and a wide range of thoracic cancers. From chest wall, pericardial, and diaphragmatic tumors to esophageal, pleural, and gastric cancers and more, we provide patients with access to the latest therapies and treatments in the convenience of one location. This includes minimally invasive surgical options, advanced radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and infusion and clinical trials.
