Healthy Living: Pinpointing Lung Cancer

Posted: Updated:

More people in the United States die from lung cancer than any other type of cancer.  

In the next 12 months, more than 200,000 people will be told they have it.  

Now, in a breakthrough procedure, doctors have developed a new way to more precisely pinpoint where the tumor is, saving lungs and lives.

Doctor Bueno says this procedure is for patients with small lung modules.  

Patients with large cancers will need a bigger operation.
