Prevention and Screening
With advancements in lung cancer screening, the chances of survival are higher than ever before. The Saint Thomas Health Lung Cancer and Thoracic Center offers a low-dose CT scan to catch the disease in its earliest stages. If you have had an X-ray that showed a “spot” on your lung, talk to your doctor about your risk factors for lung cancer. While “spots” do not always mean cancer, it is important to discuss your risks, such as smoking, and any symptoms, and schedule your low-dose CT scan today.
If you or a loved one is at risk of developing lung cancer, call 615-222-LUNG (5864) to schedule a life-saving, low-dose CT lung cancer screening at one of our 12 convenient locations throughout Middle Tennessee.
