Currently, smoke or quit smoking within the past 15 years
What Increases Risk for Lung Cancer
The most critical risk factor for lung cancer is cigarette smoking. Tobacco use accounts for a majority of all lung cancers. The longer you smoke and the more packs of cigarettes you smoke, the greater your risk for developing cancer.
Other factors that may put you at increased risk for lung cancer include the following:
Exposure to radon
Why Get Screened
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths.
You can schedule your in-person low-dose CT scan, which will take less than five minutes at any of our locations. You need a doctor’s prescription to get screened. If you do not have a prescription or a doctor, you can call us to discuss your risk for lung cancer.
