Lung Cancer Screening Program 
Did you know that survival rates for lung cancer patients increase when their cancer is detected and treated early? It’s true. Unfortunately only 1 in 8 people with lung cancer are diagnosed in the early stages of the disease. National studies have shown that screening a specific population for lung cancer with a CT scan can reduce the risk of dying from lung cancer by 20 percent. Lung cancer screening is quick and easy, and the radiation exposure is very low.

For this reason, Mercy Health launched a Lung Cancer Screening Program that offers a low-cost service based on state-of-the-art screening methods for lung cancer in high-risk patients.

Who Should Be Screened?
Screening is recommended for people who are at a high risk for lung cancer:

Age 55 or older
Current smoking history of 30+ pack years
Quit smoking within the past 15 years with a prior smoking history

How Does it Work?
If you have a doctor, contact them for a referral. Simply tell them you want to take part in the Mercy Health Lung Cancer Screening Program. If you meet the criteria for lung cancer screening, your doctor will be able to schedule your chest CT at a Mercy Health facility.

If you do not have a doctor, call Mercy Health Youngstown at 877-654-8594 or visit Find a Doctor.
The results of your scan are sent to your doctor. Depending on the results, you will be advised about the need for continued screening or additional testing and treatment. Fortunately, most health insurances now cover early screening for lung cancer.
