Lung Cancer CT Screenings
Know your risk
Lung cancer is often discovered in its late stages, after symptoms develop, making it one of the deadliest cancers. Early detection and treatment can make all the difference.
At Piedmont, we offer lung cancer CT screenings to those considered high risk for developing the disease. Risk factors for people over the age of 50 include:
- Current or former heavy tobacco user
- Second-hand smoke exposure
- Contact with asbestos, radon or other cancer-causing agents
- Family history of lung cancer, lung diseases or other cancers
