Lung cancer and bronchus cancer are the leading causes of cancer deaths in Nevada. It’s important to know your cancer risk and avoid triggers that could affect your lung health. Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada has an entire division dedicated to lung disease and sleep disorders. The division offers a variety of pulmonology services and treatments for sleep disorders to help our patients breathe better and improve their quality of sleep. They also monitor high risk lung diseases that could potentially lead to lung cancer. The Lung Center of Nevada delivers and implements individualized treatment plans and monitoring to provide the highest level of coordinated care to patients.

Lung Diseases and Sleep Disorders

The Lung Center of Nevada, a division of Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada, is home to talented board-certified pulmonologists, nurse practitioners and respiratory therapists who provide services in pulmonary and sleep medicine. These specialists work to treat patients who suffer from lung disorders, including:

  • Asthma
  • Bronchitis
  • Emphysema
  • Chronic cough
  • Nicotine dependence
  • And others

Our pulmonologists also treat patients with sleep apnea. This condition occurs when the soft tissue in a patient’s throat blocks the airway, causing them to wake up in the middle of the night in order to breathe easily again. If sleep apnea is left untreated, it can cause bigger health issues later.

Pulmonary and sleep medicine can also help patients who suffer from other various sleep disorders:

  • Snoring
  • Insomnia
  • Periodic Limb Movements of Sleep (PLMS)
  • REM Behavior Disorder (RBD)
  • Nocturnal seizures
  • Night terrors
  • Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)
  • And others
