East Kent Hospitals provides diagnosis, treatment and care services for patients with Lung Cancer. Our multi-disciplinary teams work across all three main sites - Kent and Canterbury Hospital in Canterbury, Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital in Margate, and William Harvey Hospital in Ashford.
Cancer that begins in the lungs is called primary lung cancer. Cancer that spreads to the lungs from another place in the body is known as secondary lung cancer.
There are two main forms of primary lung cancer. These are classified by the type of cells in which the cancer starts growing. They are:
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)
- Squamous cell carcinoma
- Non-small cell lung cancer not otherwise specified (NOS)
Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC)
Our teams are based across The Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital, Kent and Canterbury Hospital and the William Harvey Hospital. To contact our teams please speak to The Cancer Care Line
