November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month

If you’re a smoker or former smoker, age 50-80, it might be time for a lung cancer screening exam. It’s a simple test that can tell you if your lungs are healthy, or detect cancer early, when treatment is most effective. Talk to your provider about your risks and if you might be eligible for a screening.
