  • A current of former smoker age 55-74 AND you have a 30 pack per year history
  • Older than age 50 with a 20+ pack per year history plus family history of lung cancer, radon or occupational carcinogen exposure(asbestos, arsenic, fumes, etc.), COPD or pulmonary fibrosis,  or personal history of cancer or lymphoma.
  • If you quit smoking less than 15 years ago, you are still considered High Risk.

Should you be screened?

Talk to your physician about the risks and benefits of screening.  A low-dose CT scan may be recommended or YOU may request it.  In order to be covered by Medicare, you must visit your physician and have an order.
