Lets's face it. No one likes to see the word; no one likes to hear it. But the truth is, there are many new screenings available to detect cancer at its earliest stages. Stages where it's much more treatable and outcomes are often significantly better.
If you are between 55 and 74 years old, are currently a smoker or have quit within the last 15 years, and have smoked the equivalent of a pack of cigarettes a day for 30 years (i.e., two packs a day for 15 years), you may be eligible for a Low Dose Screening Chest CT. This new test allows our radiologists to detect lung cancer in patients at earlier stages, allowing for better treatment outcomes.
If you meet this criteria, you are in the group at highest risk for lung cancer and the American Lung Association recommends an annual screening with low dose Chest CT.
The cost is $400. Health insurance companies and Medicare do not currently cover the cost of CT scans for lung cancer screening at this time. You will be expected to pay for this test at the time of your exam.
As with any screening test, there is the possibility of a false positive test, which could lead to recommendations for further studies or procedures. You should talk to your doctor about the risks versus benefits of low dose screening Chest CT for lung cancer.
