Every moment of every day, your lungs take in oxygen and remove carbon dioxide from the body. The lungs are part of the respiratory system, which includes the airways, blood vessels and muscles that expand and contract when you breathe. AnMed Health physicians diagnose and treat all kinds of lung conditions, but the main reason people undergo surgery is treat lung cancer. Lung cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in both Oconee and Pickens counties and the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in Anderson County.
Detecting lung cancer in its early stages is difficult because it spreads quickly and many lesions are hard to see or reach. Traditionally, when doctors identify a suspicious lesion they perform a bronchoscopy, a needle biopsy or major surgery to remove a section of the lung. But as technology advances so are the tools available to help doctors diagnose and treat lung cancer.
