Any sign of a pulmonary condition, lung disease or cancer can be scary. West Tennessee Healthcare provides expert pulmonology care for lung and pulmonary conditions, including treatment options, screening methods and a specialized clinic for patients with lung nodules.

Specialized Pulmonology Care for Lung Nodules

Lung nodules, or abnormal growths in the lungs, are very common and can be benign or cancerous. While most patients don’t experience symptoms of nodules, early diagnosis and prompt care lead to the best possible outcomes. West Tennessee Healthcare Lung Nodule Clinic provides expert pulmonology care and assessment over time to diagnose, monitor and treat this condition.
