Lung Cancer Screening Test

LungScreen is a unique easy to use at-home sample collection kit that screens for antibodies that can be linked to an increased risk of developing lung cancer.
Do you have a smoking history of 1 pack daily for 20 years? Or, any smoking history with a close family history of lung cancer (parent, sibling, child)

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.

The lung cancer screening test?

You will receive a sterile collection kit, which is sent to your home, containing easy to follow step-by-step instructions. Return your sample to the laboratory and you can expect your results within two weeks of the laboratory receiving your sample. Your results will be available in your Klarity member’s page. One of our clinical team will contact you to discuss your results and assist with any questions you may have.

How does it work?

CervicalScreen is a reliable, easy to use at-home cervical cancer screening kit that detects the Human papillomavirus (HPV), the virus that causes cervical cancer. For 90% of women, using CervicalScreen means you may never need to have a smear test again. CervicalScreen tests for the 13 high-risk sub-types of HPV, identifying women potentially at a high risk of cervical cancer. The NHS does not currently report on HPV sub-types.
