Every 2.3 minutes someone is diagnosed with lung cancer, the second most common cancer among both men and women in the United States.
BSA Harrington Cancer Center offers a low-dose Cat Scan (CT) as a recommended screening for those at high-risk for developing lung cancer.
The low-dose CT scan is recommended for people who have a history of heavy smoking, are current or former cigarette smokers who have quit within the last 15 years or are between 55 and 74 years old.
Screening for lung cancer with the low-dose CT scan is simple, effective and can improve your outcome with early diagnosis. Most insurance plans will cover this expense if the patient qualifies as a screening candidate.
Discuss your lung cancer risk with your doctor to find out if the low-dose CT screening is right for you. For more information on the screening, please call 806-212-LUNG (5864).
BSA’s Tobacco Dependence Center can help individuals who are seeking a nicotine-free life. For more information on Tobacco Cessation services, please call 806-463-7848.
