Screening Guide

Screening is the search for cancer in people who do not have any symptoms. At this time, some doctors may recommend testing in people who are at higher risk for lung cancer, such as current or former smokers, but not all doctors agree on this. No screening guidelines are available for symptomless people who have no lung cancer risk factors, and, therefore, screening isn't generally recommended.

There are three ways that doctors may try to screen for lung cancer:
  • Sputum cytology test
  • Chest X-rays
  • Spiral CT scans
