Supporting You From Diagnosis to Survivorship
At the USC Lung Cancer Program, we understand that being diagnosed with cancer is a life-changing event for you and your loved ones, and that you may need support as you journey from diagnosis to treatment to long-term survivorship.
As part of our comprehensive approach to care, our program offers you access to a network of resources designed to help you manage the unique challenges related to lung cancer treatment and recovery. An integral member of your care team is our lung nurse navigator, who leverages a wide range of expertise to streamline all aspects of your care. From offering clinical guidance and support to managing all of your appointments, our nurse navigator is your dedicated health advocate.
At our Image Enhancement Center, our specially trained staff is ready to help you cope with some of the changes you may experience during chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Whether you need hats, wigs, head wraps or specialized skin care products, our team is dedicated to helping you find the products and tools that fit your individual health needs and goals.
Patients who are 39 and younger can tap into the resources of our Adolescent and Young Adults Program to find support for issues that are unique to young adults with cancer, including reproductive health, and managing work, school and family concerns.
Our caring team also remains by your side as you embark on the journey toward recovery and long-term survivorship. At the LIFE Cancer Survivorship Clinic, our experts offer survivors the education, tools and support they need to maximize their long-term physical health and emotional well-being.
