Are you or a loved one trying to stop smoking? Holland Hospital offers resources to help you through this life changing process.
Lung Cancer Screening Test
If you are a heavy lifelong smoker and between 55-80 years of age, you may be eligible for a lung screening test. The test is called low dose computed tomography (or LDCT) and it can identify lung cancer early when treatment may be more effective. During an LDCT scan, you lie on a table and an X-ray machine uses a low dose (amount) of radiation to make detailed images of your lungs. The scan only takes a few minutes and is not painful.
You will need a physician referral so speak with your primary care provider. You can also learn more about LDCT at the American Lung Association website which offers a test eligibility quiz:
