Lung Cancer Screening

At Daviess Community Hospital, we offer low-dose computed tomography for lung cancer screenings. Patients will need to contact their primary care provider to get a lung cancer screening ordered.

In the United States, lung cancer is the second most common cancer in both men and women. It’s also the leading cause of death from cancer. If lung cancer is found at an earlier stage, when it is small and before it has spread, it is more likely to be successfully treated.

Usually symptoms of lung cancer do not appear until the disease is already at an advanced stage. Even when lung cancer does cause symptoms, many people may mistake them for other problems, such as an infection or long-term effects from smoking. This may delay the diagnosis.

Current and former smokers are at a higher risk of getting lung cancer.
