Lung cancers are cancers of the lungs and respiratory system. There are three main types of lung cancer: Small cell, Non Small cell, and Mesothelioma.

St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust offers a comprehensive diagnostic service including lung function testing, a dedicated unit to perform bronchoscopies, and specialist lung ultrasound or CT guided biopsy.

To further aid diagnosis, the Radiology Department at St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides a comprehensive imaging service (including MRI, CT and ultrasound technologies) while the Pathology service provides expert analysis of blood, cells and tissues.

We are also able to offer PET scanning as part of our diagnostic suite through agreements signed with other local trusts.
