November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month


November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month.  Did you know that there are over 200,000 new cases of lung cancer each year?  Lung and bronchus cancer is the first leading cause of cancer death in our country.  The good news is that there is a screening test for lung cancer.  A study by the National Cancer Institute showed that screening current and former smokers with a chest CT scan increases survival rate for lung cancer by 20%.  Talk to your doctor to learn whether you're a candidate for this screening, and find out more at…/diagnostic-…/lung-cancer-screening.
