    Instead of wondering about your risk for lung cancer, breathe easier and take action with CPMC's Lung Cancer Screening Program. Offered to current and former smokers age 55-74, the screening starts with a consult with one of our pulmonologists, then a CT scan if appropriate.

    Most patients with lung cancer have smoked cigarettes and one’s risk remains elevated for decades after one stops smoking. Unfortunately, without screening, lung cancer is usually detected late in the course of disease. Our goal is to work with at-risk individuals to help detect cancer early, manage annual screenings and any associated follow-up evaluations, and to assist with smoking cessation.
