Lung Cancer Screening at Northern Light Health

Would you give up 10 minutes of your day for a little peace of mind? Me too. Check out our quick video below and hear Dave’s story. Our Northern Light Lung Cancer Screening Program is here to offer that peace in the form of a simple screening. Lung cancer can be scary, but with low dose CT lung screening, it can be detected at an early stage when more treatment options are available.

Most insurance will cover your annual screening for lung cancer if:

  • You are between 50 and 80 years old.
  • You smoke or quit in the past 15 years.
  • You have not taken antibiotics in the past 12 weeks to treat a lung infection.
  • Your average ‘pack year’ is 20 or greater. That’s the number of packs smoked per day multiplied by the number of years you’ve smoked.

Breathe a little easier, talk to your primary care provider, and get screened today.
