Lung Nodule Clinic

The Penrose Lung Nodule Clinic has grown steadily since 2008 when it was founded by our own Dr. Alain Eid. Today, our providers work in close collaboration with a team of thoracic nurse navigators who coordinate patient care. Colorado Springs Pulmonary Consultants and the Penrose Lung Nodule Clinic are part of a larger multidisciplinary team.

The purpose of the Penrose Lung Nodule Clinic is to find cancers as early as possible by ensuring lung nodules are monitored per national guidelines. For the small percentage of nodules that are cancer, thoracic nurse navigators coordinate a team of cancer specialists to provide high-quality cancer care.

Our providers have received specialized training in robotic-assisted bronchoscopy to perform less invasive procedures to diagnose cancers found in the lung. This technology allows our providers to reach smaller lung nodules, when appropriate.

It is estimated that twenty-five percent of people have lung nodules and are not aware of them until they are discovered incidentally when being worked-up for something else. Most lung nodules are benign, but it is important to follow these nodules according to national guidelines to make sure they do not grow, change, or become suspicious for lung cancer. Early discovery and treatment of lung nodules or lung cancer provides for better patient outcomes.
