Lung Cancer causes more deaths than any other cancer.  The good news is that early detection through lung cancer CT screening can significantly improve your likelihood of survival.

  • 85% of high risk patients can be cured once lung cancer is detected by a CT screening
  • 92% cure rate with early detection and appropriate treatment
  • Without early screening, over 95% of lung cancer patients die within a few years of diagnosis.

WHO SHOULD BE SCREENED?

The people who are most likely to benefit from a screening are those at a higher risk for lung cancer, such as people with a long history of smoking.
You should get screened if you:

  • Are a current or former smoker
  • Are age 55 – 74
  • Having a smoking history of 30 pack-years or more (1 pack a day for 30 years; 2 packs a day for 15 years, etc.)

WHAT IS SCREENING?

Screening is testing with a CT scan which can identify small nodules or other abnormalities in your lungs. Finding a problem at an early stage, before there are symptoms, may make it easier to treat.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Studies have shown that screening those at high risk with CT scans before symptoms appear can find lung cancer early when it is easier to treat and more likely to be cured. In addition, lung cancer screening might also show if you have other conditions or diseases that need to be treated.

 

OTHER RISK FACTORS – discuss these with your healthcare provider before scheduling your lung cancer screening:

  • Contact with radon, arsenic, beryllium, cadmium, chromium, nickel, asbestos, coal dust, soot, fine industrial particulates, benzene, formaldehyde, formalin, silica, diesel fumes, or other cancer-causing agents.
  • If you have had other cancers such as small cell lung cancer of smoking-related head and neck cancer.
  • Family history of lung cancer.
  • Exposure to secondhand smoke.
  • Having radiation therapy to the chest for other cancers, especially if you smoke.
  • Having treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma with alkylating agents (a type of cancer drug).
  • Having other lung diseases such as COPD or Pulmonary Fibrosis.
