Clinical Services at Rush Comprehensive Lung Cancer
and Chest Tumor Clinic

At Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, our goal is to address lung cancers and other conditions of the lung and chest while also managing the side effects of treatment to maintain the patient’s comfort and quality of life. Some patients with lung cancer receive care at The Coleman Foundation Comprehensive Lung Cancer Clinic, where a multidisciplinary group of specialists work collaboratively to develop and implement personalized treatment plans.

Rush offers comprehensive, state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment for malignancies of the chest, including the following:

  • Non-small cell and small cell lung cancer
  • Mesothelioma
  • Soft tissue sarcomas of the chest wall
  • Thymomas
  • Lung metastases

If you have a suspected or diagnosed cancer, we are here to help. Call (888) 352-RUSH (7874) to schedule an initial visit or a second opinion.

Diagnosis

At Rush, physicians use the most advanced methods of imaging, biopsy and analysis to determine each patient’s condition, including whether the cancer has spread outside of the lungs. They also have expertise with the following minimally invasive diagnostic techniques, which offer a high degree of accuracy while reducing patient discomfort:

  • Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS), a minimally invasive procedure during which a thoracic surgeon obtains tissue samples for testing by using a tiny video camera and surgical instruments inserted through small incisions between the ribs. VATS can also be used for treatment.
  • Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS), a minimally invasive technique (no incisions are required) for looking at your lymph nodes and chest tumors to determine if your cancer has spread to other areas of the body.

Treatment

Rush offers a full range of treatments for lung cancer, from standard therapies to innovative treatment options, and new options are being explored every day.

Clinical Trials

Physicians at Rush are involved in clinical trials evaluating new treatment options for lung cancers. Through clinical trials, some patients can access experimental treatments that are not otherwise available.
