Do I Qualify for a Lung Cancer Screening?

Not everyone qualifies for a lung cancer screening. The US Preventive Services Task Force recommends that individuals who answer yes to all of the following questions get a lung cancer screening:

  • Are you between the ages of 55-77?
  • Are you currently a smoker or have you smoked within the last 15 years?
  • Do you have a smoking history of 30 pack years?
  • Pack years are determined by multiplying the number of years smoked by the number of packs smoked per day
  • For example, 1 pack/day x 30 years = 30 pack years OR 2 packs/day x 15 years = 30 pack years

Benefits of a Lung Cancer Screening

When it comes to fighting lung cancer, early detection is the best protection. In fact, this disease is more likely to be treatable when found at earlier stages.

A low dose CT lung screening can save your life. This is a quick and painless exam done without any X-ray dye (or contrast). The CT scanner scans the chest using low doses of radiation to create a series of detailed images of the lungs. This state-of-the-art screening can detect early stage cancer more accurately than other screening methods.
