Lung cancer screening

Are you at risk for lung cancer? We can help.

At the Cancer Centers of Sharp HealthCare, we know that one of the best ways to beat lung cancer is to catch it early. That's why we offer low-dose CT lung screenings to help detect tumors earlier — when they're most treatable. And earlier detection means a better chance of long-term survival.

Is a low-dose CT lung cancer screening right for you?


Are you age 50 to 80?


Do you currently smoke, or did you quit within the past 15 years?


Do you have a 20 pack-year history of smoking? This means you smoked 20 cigarettes (1 pack) per day for 20 years.

If you answered yes to all of the above, talk to your doctor about a referral to Sharp for a lung cancer screening or call 1-800-82-SHARP (1-800-827-4277).

Lung CT scans are endorsed by the American Medical Association, American College of Chest Physicians, American Thoracic Society, American Lung Association, American Cancer Society and Lung Cancer Alliance.

Many insurance plans, including Medicare, now cover these screenings.
