Cancers We Treat Lung Cancer Prevention & Screening
Are you at risk of developing lung cancer? Early detection can save your life.
Baptist Health wants to help former smokers make sure they stay cancer free. A low-dose CT lung cancer screening is a safe and quick way to detect lung cancer early, when it’s most treatable. The non-invasive simple screening is covered by Medicaid and Medicare and many insurance plans.
Please consider this important screening if you:
- are between 55 and 77 years old.
- have a 30 pack-year history of smoking or more (this means 1 pack a day for 30 years, 2 packs a day for 15 years, etc).
- are a current smoker or have quit within the last 15 years.
I believe I meet the requirements for a lung cancer screening and would like to request an appointment with a Baptist Primary Care physician to discuss further.
