Lung Cancer Screening
Are you one of the thousands of Americans who is at risk for developing lung cancer? Lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer deaths, with a projected 159,000 deaths in the U.S. in 2014. According to the American Cancer Society, more people die of lung cancer each year than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined.
But the good news is that when diagnosed early, lives can be saved. HSHS St. Mary's Hospital's Lung Cancer Screening can do just that.
A lung cancer screening is a quick, painless, non-invasive low dose CT scan which can detect nodules or spots on your lung which might be early indicators of lung cancer. It takes just one-minute to have a scan which can potentially save your life.
