This unit is in charge of the study and treatment of bronchial and pulmonary pathologies in cancer patients.

The Pneumology Unit coordinates with the Thoracic Surgery team and is integrated into the Lung Cancer Tumour Committee, a multidisciplinary team of professionals (medical oncology, thoracic surgery, radiation oncology, pneumology, radiology, interventional radiology, nuclear medicine, radiation physics, pathology, molecular biology, physical therapy, psychology, nursing and home hospitalization) that evaluate and define the optimal therapeutic strategy for each patient.

The Pneumology Unit collaborates with the IELCAP Early Detection Unit, where they perform early diagnosis of asymptomatic lung cancer. This programme is part of an international project against lung cancer led and coordinated by the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, in collaboration with the Institute of Biotechnology of Arizona.

The goal of the IELCAP Early Diagnosis Unit is to detect lung cancer in early stages of the disease, since it allows the possibility of surgical treatment, or a combination of therapies that are less aggressive and improve the survival of the patient.
