Leading-Edge Cancer Care
As you strive to stay positive in the face of lung or esophageal cancer diagnosis, AdventHealth can give you even more reason to be confident: we never stop looking for more effective ways to treat and eradicate cancer.
With a team of specialized oncologists and physicians pioneering some of the latest clinical trials and research studies, we are continually evaluating new cancer prevention and treatment options that could change the future of medicine. With access to the latest research and protocols, we aim to provide lung and esophageal cancer treatments that support your recovery and guide you to a life of whole health and wellness.
- Screenings for Early Diagnosis and Peace of Mind
Chest pain, coughing, trouble swallowing, and vomiting don't necessarily mean a lung or esophageal cancer diagnosis is in your future. But wondering if that persistent cough is a symptom of something bigger can steal the joy from your life. Being proactive about your symptoms is the best way to put you on a path to wellness. Catching cancer early is the first step in getting proper treatment. That’s why AdventHealth works hard to make the screening process as simple as possible.
If you’re 55 years of age or older and have smoked at least one pack of cigarettes a day for 30 years (or two packs a day for 15 years), you may be eligible to take part in our Lung Health Program. As a participant, you will be connected with a personal Lung Care Coordinator who will guide you through the screening process, which encompasses the latest in genetic counseling, imaging, and minimally invasive diagnostic testing, including:
- CT Scan
- Endoscopy (Esophageal Cancer)
- Sputum Cytology
You want to stop wondering and start living without worry. We want that for you, too. The first step is screening. If your screening shows cancer, we'll begin to treat it immediately. And, if you're clear, we'll talk to you about risk factors and preventive measures so you can continue to live your healthiest life.

Lung and esophageal cancers take their toll on your whole being. But have courage. You won’t stop pushing for positive results, and we won’t, either. That’s why we focus on the three essential tiers of treatment: surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Because with a multidisciplinary set of highly specialized surgical procedures and a combination of treatments, we can offer you the best chance at a full recovery. Lung and esophageal cancer treatment options include:

We’ll consult with you every step of the way so you’re always informed and prepared for what comes next. And if your treatment requires a lifestyle change, like quitting smoking, we'll give you the tools and support you need to leave old habits in the past and press on toward a healthier future.
