Lung Cancer Screening Test
Why Lung Screening is necessary?
Klarity’s cancer screening services are clinically governed by age restrictions, if you are not within the age range for a service you will not be able to sign up to that service. This is because clinical research does not support the benefits of screening people outside our specified age eligibilities. Regardless of age, if you have symptoms then you should always seek medical advice from your Physician.
Why should I get checked for lung cancer?
According to the American Cancer Society, lung cancer is the second most common cancer in both men and women in the United States, after skin cancer. In 2021, it was estimated that there would be about 235,760 new cases of lung cancer in the U.S. (119,100 cases in men and 116,660 cases in women).
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among both men and women in the United States, accounting for about 25% of all cancer deaths. More people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined.
The overall age-adjusted lung cancer incidence rate has been declining for several years, primarily due to a decrease in smoking rates. However, lung cancer incidence rates vary by factors such as age, gender, and race.
