There's now a way to increase the chance of finding lung cancer early.
Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer death in the United States. Screening is now available to help find lung cancer in its early, more curable stages. Finding a lung tumor early can lead to more treatment options, less invasive surgery, and a better chance of survival. John Theurer Cancer Center, part of Hackensack University Medical Center, offers low-dose computed tomography (CT) scanning to screen for lung cancer in people at risk of this disease due to current or former smoking.
About Lung Cancer Screening
Low-dose CT lung cancer screening is quick and easy and results in a minimal amount of radiation exposure. Studies have shown that CT screening can lower the risk of death from lung cancer by 20 percent in people who are at high risk for this disease. Without screening, lung cancer is usually not found until a person develops symptoms, when the cancer is much harder to treat successfully.
