About lung cancer screening
What to expect
Lung cancer screening is quick, simple, and painless. The screening should be done at a facility with an experienced staff and an LDCT scanner. People at higher risk of lung cancer should not put off screening simply because they show no signs of lung cancer, which usually causes no symptoms in its early, treatable stages. Those who delay action until they feel the effects of lung cancer are often too late to benefit from effective treatment.
