Early detection could stop Lung Cancer in its tracks.
Get screened. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death. More people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast and prostate cancers combined. However, as much as 80% of lung cancer could be cured if detected in an early stage. If you smoke or have smoked in the past, or have been exposed to other cancer-causing agents, you should schedule an appointment for a Presence Lung Scan.
At Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center we screen you for lung cancer using computerized tomography (CT) scans. This simple test is a non-invasive, low radiation procedure that dramatically improves the detection of even the smallest of tumors, and takes approximately 15 minutes.
The following individuals at high risk for lung cancer will benefit from the Presence Lung Scan:
- Men and Women between the ages of 55 and 75 years, and
- Current or former heavy smokers
