Lung cancer is the leading cause of death from cancer in the United States, so learning that you are at high risk for lung cancer can be a stressful and frightening ordeal. Fortunately, when you talk to your doctor they can help you understand your risk and discuss if screening is right for you.
If you have reviewed the following criteria or have taken our risk quiz and determined that you may be at high risk for lung cancer, you should talk with your doctor about lung cancer screening.
Our Lung Cancer HelpLine is staffed by registered nurses and respiratory therapists ready to help you in any way possible. Call 1-800-LUNGUSA or send a message online.
