Our Approach To Small Cell Lung Cancer

What Sets Us Apart

Small cell lung cancer is a rapidly growing cancer of the lungs. Physicians at NYU Langone’s Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center encourage people at high risk for developing lung cancer to participate in our Lung Cancer Screening Program. Our goal is to detect lung cancer early, when treatment is most effective.

If small cell lung cancer is found, our pulmonologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and thoracic surgeons work together to create a customized treatment plan for you. Our support services, which include lung rehabilitation, counseling, and integrative therapies, may be an important part of your care.


At NYU Langone’s Perlmutter Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center, we personalize the care of every patient.More About Perlmutter Cancer Center
