Lung Cancer Screening
In the United States, more men and women die due to lung cancer than any other type of cancer. Detecting and treating the disease early makes it more likely you’ll survive, but the illness often shows no symptoms in its initial stages. Lung cancer screening can reveal the condition before you experience symptoms – and may save your life.
Our low-dose CT lung cancer screening minimizes your radiation exposure. You qualify for the painless, brief, non-invasive test if you meet all these criteria:
- You are 55 to 77 years old
- You smoked at least a pack of cigarettes a day for 30 years or two packs a day for 15 years
- You quit smoking within the past 15 years
Ask your physician about getting a referral for the screening. After the procedure, your primary care doctor will receive your results and discuss them with you.
