Stop lung cancer in its tracks. Schedule a Free CT Lung Scan Screening for Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death. However, as much as 80% of lung cancer could be cured if detected in an early stage. We are offering a simple imaging scan that can detect lung cancer, even in its earliest stages. When caught early, lung cancer is highly curable. This screening is free, painless and takes just a few minutes.

People who have a high risk of lung cancer qualify for the free CT Lung Scan Screening if you meet all of the following criteria:

  1. You must be age 55-77 with no current signs or symptoms suspicious of lung cancer.
  2. You must be a current heavy smoker of cigarettes or a former heavy smoker who has quit within the past 15 years. Note: A 30 pack-year smoker is considered a heavy smoker. This is someone who for example, is or has smoked at least one pack a day for 30 years, or two packs a day for 15 years, or 3 packs a day for 10 years, etc.
  3. Special Consideration for screening: If you are age 55-77, and have never smoked, but have had specific occupational or environmental exposures to asbestos and/or radon you may be eligible for a CT Lung scan. Note: Symptoms such as chest pain, wheezing, stubborn cough, coughing up blood, weight loss or significant shortness of breath could be serious. If you are experiencing these symptoms, you should see your doctor for examination.
