Lung cancer and esophageal cancer are very aggressive diseases. Early detection is essential. Acting quickly and decisively can make the difference between a cure and a life-limiting situation. The need to have in place a system to encompass the prompt diagnosis and care of a cancer that often involves complex treatment plans and coordination of services triggered the creation of the multidisciplinary Thoracic Oncology Program at the UF Health Jacksonville Cancer Center.

By bringing a multispecialty approach to the diagnosis and treatment of cancers, this program, backed by UF faculty physicians, can decrease evaluation time for patients from weeks and months to just a few days.
