Lung Cancer Screening
Could you be at risk for lung cancer?
Unfortunately, lung cancer kills more people than any other cancer in the United States. Catching it early is key, and Memorial can help.
What Puts You at Risk?
Being a current or former smoker between age 55 and 74, and having a smoking history of at least one pack a day for 30 years or two packs per day for 15 years.
A CT Scan May Detect Lung Cancer.
If you may be at risk for lung cancer, a CT-scan screening is recommended.
- Low-dose CT scans are relatively safe, using as little as 10% of the radiation found in an ordinary chest CT.
- CT scans are painless, non-invasive, and take approximately 10 minutes.
- Low-dose CT screening is proven to effectively reduce the number of lung cancer deaths among high-risk patients.
When cancer is found early with screening, patients may undergo less invasive surgeries and retain more of their lung tissue.
