Lung cancer screening
Lung cancer screening is currently only recommended for high-risk adults. This is because they are more likely to get sick.
High risk does not mean that you will definitely get lung cancer. But you may need to start regular checkups. Therefore, if you get cancer, your doctor will detect it at a very early stage. With early detection, the chances of a successful cure of the disease are high.
You should get screened for lung cancer if you:
- • Current smoker (or former smoker who has quit smoking in the last 15 years);
- • Have been smoking for 30 years (for example, one pack a day for 30 years or two packs a day for 15 years).
If you fall into this group, follow the survey schedule below:
Age 55 to 80
- • The doctor's consultation;
- • Low dose computed tomography (computed tomography or computed tomography) every year.
Along with regular check-ups, watch for any changes in your health. If you experience symptoms such as a persistent cough or chest pain, see your doctor right away.
At the NROC, you can undergo high-quality diagnostics, get a "second opinion" about the type of tumor cells in the diagnosis, and, if necessary, immediately begin and receive qualified treatment.
