Lung cancer kills more men and women than any other type of cancer. It is also the second most common cancer for both groups. More men and women die from lung cancer each year than colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined. Although lung cancer is one of the more difficult cancers to treat, many patients who caught the cancer early have been cured of the disease. Early detection of lung cancer can increase survival rates by 20%! The National Cancer Institute recommends a lung cancer screening for patients that meet certain criteria. Please consult your healthcare provider to decide if you are eligible for the screen.
