Our doctors recommend lung cancer screening for people based on their age and the number of years they’ve smoked.
We recommend screening if you:
- currently smoke or quit smoking within the past 15 years
- are between the ages of 50 and 80
- have smoked an average of one pack per day for at least 20 years, or the equivalent (for example, two packs a day for 10 years)
We also recommend smoking cessation counseling or referral for individuals who currently smoke.
