Lung Cancer Screening: Who Needs It?
Lung cancer is the leading cancer killer for both men and women in this country. It kills more people each year than colon, breast, pancreas, and prostate cancer combined. Smoking is the leading risk factor. New guidelines recommend annual screening for anyone aged 55-74 with at least a 30-pack per year history of smoking who either continue to smoke or have quit within the past 15 years.
Join Dr. Michaela Straznicka, Co- Medical Director for the John Muir Health Thoracic program who will present the latest information related to the diagnosis of lung cancer, current recommendations for screening and current early stage treatment and outcomes.
