November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month

November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month. Studies have shown that screening current and former heavy smokers reduced their risk of dying from lung cancer by 20%.

A low dose CT lung screening can help diagnose lung cancer in its earliest stages, making treatment more successful. Early diagnosis equals improved patient outcomes.

The 10-second low dose CT lung screening exam is for patients 55-77 who have smoked at least one pack of cigarettes a day for 30 years or at least two packs of cigarettes a day for 15 years.
