“One breath, and four seconds later … saved his life.”

Although lung cancer has numerous causes, the most common risk comes from smoking. As  smokers, many people have decided that lung cancer may be inevitable – making a fatalistic judgement call based on their age, years of smoking, and an acceptance of the addictive nature of cigarette smoking.

Others feel it’s too late because they have smoked for years or tell themselves ‘my parents smoked for years without getting cancer.” They don’t have symptoms. No “smoker’s cough,” no hacking, wheezing, or other issues. Here’s the hard truth:

You cannot beat the odds of lung cancer.

Your risk for lung cancer compared to someone who never smoked? 25% higher.

Is it better to live not knowing? Is it better to live in fear? Don’t be scared, be screened. As shown in the video story of Terry, a lack of symptoms does not mean there isn’t cancerous cells present in your lungs. There are many myths and facts about lung cancer. Make sure you have the facts.

Here’s a proven, simple fact:

Early detection can save your life.

You may have heard this before, but the statistic is astounding. If lung cancer is caught early, there is a 92% chance of survival. If caught later, lung cancer survival drops to just 15%. But to find potentially cancerous nodules early enough, doctors must be able to see them. The right type of screening is therefore crucial.

X-Rays are not enough.

Early diagnosis with a CT Lung Screening procedure is critical. It is the ONLY proven and effective way to screen for smaller nodules. Although chest x-rays are commonly used, they a two-dimensional (2D) images of limited sensitivity. Tumors less than 1/2 inch in size (smaller than a marble) are often missed.

With a CT Lung Screening, low-dose x-rays are taken in a spiral pattern to make a 3D image of the lungs. It can spot nodules as small as flea (2.5 mm in size).
