Lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer-related deaths in America. Undergoing an early detection, low dose lung cancer screening can save your life. Research shows that screening can help detect lung cancer even before the clinical signs or symptoms become evident. Therefore the key to successful treatment of this disease is early detection, before it has compromised the function of one or more vital organs. It is most treatable in the early stages and in fact, can be highly curable when detected early.
Candidates for Screening/Risk Factors: Current Smoker or former smoker, exposure to second hand smoke, radon or asbestos exposure, lung disease history or family history of lung disease, other exposure to known cancer-causing chemicals or carcinogens.
