Protect Your Health With a Lung Cancer Screening

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. We know that sounds scary, but the good news is that we can often treat lung cancer if we find it early. That's why screenings are so important.

It's recommended that you get an annual lung cancer screening if you're between the ages of 55-80, have a history of heavy smoking, or have smoked within the last 15 years. Your primary care doctor can help you decide if a screening is right for you.

At Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital, our trusted lung cancer specialists make lung screenings fast, accurate, and painless.

• Persistent respiratory infections (like bronchitis or pneumonia)
• Chest pain that gets worse when coughing or laughing
• Hoarseness
• Fatigue and shortness of breath
