Treatment for lung cancer can be highly successful if the tumor is detected in its earliest stages, before there are any signs or symptoms of the disease.
Valley's lung cancer screening program uses a low-dose CT scan to identify small nodules or other abnormalities in your lungs. The CT scan takes about 15-20 minutes.
Who Should Be Screened for Lung Cancer?
Lung cancer screening is recommended for those who:
- Are between the ages of 55-80
- Are current smokers or have quit in the past 15 years
- Have a 30-pack-year smoking history (someone who either currently or 15 years ago smoked a pack a day for 30 years or smoked two packs a day for 15 years)
- Are generally in good health
