Take Our Lung Cancer Risk Quiz and Determine Your Eligibility For Screening
Thanks to the latest advances in medical technology, there is new hope for patients and families at risk for lung cancer. Our screening eligibility quiz will let you know if you should talk to your doctor about being screened for lung cancer via low-dose CT scan. Screening is key to early detection — when lung cancer is diagnosed at an early stage it is more likely to be curable.
A pack year is an estimation of the amount you smoked. So, if you smoked 20 cigarettes a day (one pack) for 20 years, your pack years equal 20. Or, if you smoked two packs a day for 10 years, your pack years equal 20.
You have smoked X cigarettes a day for X years, which is equivalent to X pack years.

Medicare covers screening for individuals 50-77 who have a 20 pack-year history of smoking AND are a current smoker or have quit within the last 15 years.
