Cancer Screening guidelines for Lung Cancer Cancer

  • We recommend lung cancer screening guidelines for those who are at high risk of lung cancer due to cigarette smoking.
  • Screening might be right for you if you are all of the following:
  • 55 to 74 years of age
  • In good health
  • Have at least a 30 pack-year smoking history AND are either still smoking or have quit within the last 15 years (A pack-year is the number of cigarette packs smoked each day multiplied by the number of years a person has smoked. Someone who smoked a pack of cigarettes per day for 30 years has a 30 pack-year smoking history, as does someone who smoked 2 packs a day for 15 years.)
  • Lung Cancer Screening can be done using a low dose Spiral CT scan. Consult with our Oncologists panel for further advice Cancer Screening guidelines for Lung Cancer Cancer
