With the establishment of the Lung Cancer Center at the Leon Hess
Cancer Center, Monmouth Medical Center brings to Monmouth and Ocean
counties the only facility of its kind dedicated to the early detection,
diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer — the
nation’s leading cancer killer.
The center offers this most advanced array of services in one centralized
location, led by a multidisciplinary
team of medical professionals who evaluate patients diagnosed
with lung cancer and those with symptoms that may indicate they
have the disease.
Patients with symptoms that are causing them concern are encouraged
to undergo an evaluation at the Lung Cancer Center — whether
it is self-directed, through a physician referral or for a second
As a division of the Leon Hess Cancer Center at Monmouth, the center
provides patients with the opportunity to participate in the latest
National Cancer Institute-sponsored clinical
trials of the most promising thoracic cancer treatments. These
scientific research studies investigate better ways to prevent,
diagnose or treat cancer.
