Lung Cancer is the second most common cancer in both men and women and is our second leading diagnosis at Saddleback Memorial Medical Center.
The American Cancer Society estimates that almost 16,000 new cases of lung cancer were diagnosed in California in 2011, which accounted for about 11% of all cancer diagnosed in our state that year.

Breathing and Lung Function Tests
Take a deep breath into a spirometer and learn how well your lungs work. Our compact, hand-held spirometer gauges airflow by measuring how much air you breathe in and out and is helpful in evaluating lung function.
Blood Oxygen Levels
In a minute or two, pulse oximetry can provide an easy way of partly assessing your breathing by measuring the oxygen saturation in your blood as it circulates through your finger. Find out your own level and ask an expert what it means.
