Lung Screenings: Get the Facts

  • What are the facts about lung cancer?

    Lung cancer is the leading cause of deaths related to cancer in the United States. About 220,000 people are diagnosed with lung cancer and 150,000 people die from lung cancer each year.

  • What is lung cancer?

    Lung cancer occurs when irregular cells develop in the lungs and multiply. These abnormal cells can grow to form a tumor and can also spread to other parts of the body.

    Quite often, lung cancer is diagnosed after it has spread outside the lungs affecting other areas of the body. Approximately, 9 out of every 10 people with lung cancer die from the disease because it is found after it has spread.

  • What’s a lung screening?

    A lung screening is a non-invasive imaging test that looks at your lungs to help diagnose certain lung problems before symptoms occur. It is a low-dose CAT scan or CT scan (LDCT) for people at a higher risk of getting lung cancer. The screening can help find abnormal areas in the lungs that may be cancer.

  • Who should have a lung screening?
      A lung cancer screening is recommended for individuals who:
    • Are 55 to 80 years old
    • Are in general good health (and do not have any current signs or symptoms of lung cancer)
    • Have not had lung cancer before
    • Currently smoke or quit less than 15 years ago
    • Are or were heavy smokers (30 pack-years history such as those who smoked 1 pack per day for 30 years or 2 packs per day for 15 years)

    Current and former smokers are at a higher risk of getting lung cancer. In the United States, lung cancer is the second most common cancer in both men and women. It’s also the leading cause of death from cancer.

    Usually symptoms of lung cancer do not appear until the disease is already at an advanced stage. Even when lung cancer does cause symptoms, many people may mistake them for other problems, such as an infection or long-term effects from smoking. This may delay the diagnosis.

  • Why is a lung screening important?

    The main benefit of a lung screening is to identify cancer. If lung cancer is found at an early stage before it is causing symptoms; when it is small and before it has spread, it is more likely to be successfully treated.

  • What happens afterwards?

    After your screening, your results will be read by a physician. You may call to receive your results over the phone 48 hours after the screening is completed. A copy will also be sent to your primary care provider, should a follow up visit become necessary.

    Sometimes screening tests will show something abnormal in the lungs or nearby areas that might be cancer. CT scans of the lungs can also sometimes show problems in other areas that are in the view of the lung scans.
