Get screened for lung cancer during November

Lung cancer can be caused by many risk factors, including exposure to secondhand smoke, radon, air pollution, carcinogens, a family history of lung cancer and asbestos. Cigarette smoking, however, is the number one cause of lung cancer. If you or someone you have a smoking history, take action this November during Lung Cancer Awareness Month. Talk to your doctor about a quick, painless screening approved for early detection: Low-Dose CT (LDCT).

Most insurance companies, Medicare and Medicaid will cover the cost of LDCT lung cancer screening if you meet the eligibility requirements. Self-paying patients can visit to get a discounted LDCT of $175 (regularly $280) for lung cancer screenings scheduled in November.
