Are You a Candidate for Lung Cancer Screening?

According to National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines, annual lung cancer screening is recommended for people:
  • Ages 55 to 77 who are current or former smokers with a 30 pack-year history. A pack year is the number of packs of cigarettes smoked daily multiplied by the number of years smoking. For example, one pack a day for 30 years equals two packs daily for 15 years. Former smokers must have quit within the last 15 years.
  • Ages 50 and older with a 20 pack-year history and one additional risk factor. Additional risk factors include certain occupational exposures, cancer history, and a history of pulmonary fibrosis, emphysema, or chronic bronchitis. Your health care provider will help you determine your risk factors.
