Next Steps

What is your risk?

Multiply the number of packs smoked per day times the years you have smoked and that equals your packs per year history.

You are considered High Risk if you are:

  • A current of former smoker age 55-74 AND you have a 30 pack per year history
  • Older than age 50 with a 20+ pack per year history plus family history of lung cancer, radon or occupational carcinogen exposure(asbestos, arsenic, fumes, etc.), COPD or pulmonary fibrosis,  or personal history of cancer or lymphoma.
  • If you quit smoking less than 15 years ago, you are still considered High Risk.

Should you be screened?

Talk to your physician about the risks and benefits of screening.  A low-dose CT scan may be recommended or YOU may request it.  In order to be covered by Medicare, you must visit your physician and have an order.
