Early testing saves lives
A history of smoking increases your risk of developing lung cancer. You can address your concerns through early lung screening by checking for cancer before you have symptoms. Early detection is key to increasing survival rates for patients with lung cancer.
Early Lung Cancer Screenings
When it comes to protecting your health, Novant Health believes it pays to be relentless. Visit with one of our primary care physicians today to see if you are eligible for a low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) screening exam. The exam shows more detail than a standard chest x-ray to detect lung cancer early – often before symptoms emerge - greatly increasing the chances of successful treatment.
