Prevention and Screening

  • Am I At Risk for Lung Cancer?

    The American Cancer Society estimates that 87 percent of lung cancer cases are related to smoking. However, a small percentage of people who get lung cancer do not have a history of smoking or being around secondhand smoke. So, not all smokers get lung cancer and not all lung cancer patients were smokers.

  • What Can I Do If I’m At Risk for Lung Cancer?

  • Can I Get Checked for Lung Cancer Before I Have Symptoms?

    Lung cancer is difficult to find in its early stages. To date, there is no standard screening process to find early stage lung cancer. Current available detection tests—chest x-rays and sputum tests—are not always accurate in finding early lung cancer.
