The goal is to help individuals who are at high risk for lung cancer receive a diagnosis and treatment for their disease at an early stage when it is easier to treat and possibly cure.
Lung cancer screening looks for signs of lung cancer before you feel symptoms from the disease. Low-dose CT scan is the test now recommended to screen for lung cancer. Screening allows for earlier diagnosis and treatment, which may slow or even stop from progressing. Many lung cancer deaths can be prevented by screening high-risk people every year.
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among men and women in the United States. More people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined. It is estimated that over 221,200 people will be diagnosed with lung cancer this year. Lung cancer has traditionally been undetectable until it has reached a late, often incurable stage. With advances in technology and cancer research, there are now proven and effective ways to screen for lung cancer at its earliest stages.
Those who may be eligible candidates and could benefit from this screening include:
