That's what makes lung cancer screening so important, the American Lung Association says. The organization provides this additional information:
- Screening can help find lung cancer at an early stage when it is easier to treat.
- A low (radiation) dose CT scan may reduce your chances of dying from lung cancer. This imaging process takes a series of pictures as you lie on a table that slides in and out of a scanning machine.
- Lung cancer screening is not suitable for everyone, but may be recommended for those at high risk for developing the disease.
