CT Low dose lung screening

This is for anyone who is currently smoking or has ever smoked this could also be used for those who were around secondhand smoke.

I quit smoking 10 – years ago but smoked for many many years.

There are many new studies showing that a low dose CT scan can find early lung cancer as small as a grain of rice.

I had my LDCT done on Monday and I see a pulmonologist next week to explain the results to me. It was literally a 5-minute test and no tunnels that is a big plus. Our insurance paid for it at 100% so there was no out of pocket.

This American Cancer Society recommends yearly screening for lung cancer for people who are 55 – 74 years old. If you are a current smoker or a smoker who has quit in the last 15 years.  If you have a 30 pack a year smoking history.

Tell your Dr. you are interested in doing an LDCT scan. It could increase the quality of your life or possibly find early cancer.
