Lung Cancer Screening Test
Why Lung Screening is necessary?
Why should I get checked for lung cancer?
If you smoke or have smoked heavily-more than 20 per day. And or have a close family history of lung cancer (parent, sibling, child), then LungScreen provides you with early detection often before symptoms arise. Smoking, directly or indirectly, is connected with 80% of all lung cancers. Currently there is no NHS screening programme for lung cancer in the UK. The survival of people with early stage lung cancer is much better than those diagnosed at a later stage.
