St. Joseph's Lung Cancer Screening Program

 

The lung cancer screening program at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona offers those with a high risk of lung cancer the opportunity to screen for and diagnose lung cancer before symptoms develop.

 

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death - more than cancers of the breast, prostate, colon and pancreas combined. A study conducted by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) showed that screening people at high risk for lung cancer with low dose computed tomography (CT) scans reduced lung cancer deaths by 20%. Another study estimates that early detection and treatment of lung cancer could save over 70,000 lives a year in the United States.

Is A Lung Screening Right For Me?

Lung cancer screening is not appropriate for everyone. Only those considered at high risk for lung cancer should be screened. You are considered high risk for lung cancer if you are over 50, have a heavy smoking history, and/or have a family history of lung cancer. Take the online lung cancer risk assessment to determine if you qualify for a lung cancer screening.

An important consideration for screening is whether the level of individual risk is high enough for screening to be of benefit. Our physicians or your primary care doctor can discuss the benefits and risks of screening to determine what is best for you.
