secondary lung cancers (metastases)

Metastatic lung tumours develop when cancer spreads from a primary site somewhere else in the body. Surgical removal may be recommended, depending on the number of tumours, how much healthy lung will remain after surgery, and the time since diagnosis of the primary cancer.

 

Where possible, Mr Scarci uses minimally invasive video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) which minimises postoperative pain and reduces the length of hospital stay.

 

When more metastases are present, or a more complex resection is required, a larger thoracotomy operation may be recommended. This allows the surgeon to examine the entire lung, reducing the chance of tiny, more difficult-to-find nodules being missed.

 

Mr Scarci has successfully removed lung metastases arising from primary tumours such as colorectal cancer, head and neck cancer, malignant melanoma, osteosarcoma, renal cell cancer, soft tissue sarcoma and testicular cancer.

 

Our patients are treated in close collaboration with a dedicated multidisciplinary team, including a radiation oncologist when needed, and postoperative follow-up will usually include regular CT scans.
