  • Lung Cancer Screening Clinic

    Lung Cancer Screening Clinic

    Lung cancer is responsible for more cancer deaths than any other type of cancer. While the best prevention is to quit smoking, screening for lung cancer can also reduce this risk. For appropriate patients, the Lung Cancer Screening Clinic at Metro Health serves to evaluate and assist in screening patients in accordance to the US Preventive Services Task Force.

    Recent studies have shown that screening patients at high-risk for lung cancer with an annual low dose of CT scan can decrease the risk of dying from lung cancer and overall mortality. Screening is recommended annually for patients that meet criteria and is advised by provider.

    The first step in the screening process is to meet with a physician for a “shared decision-making visit,” where risks, benefits and outcomes of lung cancer screening are reviewed and documented. Following this appointment, if the patient wishes to proceed, the screening occurs with a low dose chest CT scan. Your physician will then recommend ongoing scans, typically at yearly intervals for as long as you meet criteria. They will also assist with evaluation and follow up of abnormalities.

    Your doctor may refer you for screening, or you may refer yourself. High-risk patients who might consider doing the screening are:

    • Age 55 – 77
    • Current smoker or quit in the last 15 years
    • Have smoked the equivalent of 1 pack of cigarettes daily for 30 years (30 pack years) or more
    • Patients should not have another reason to get a CT, including a recent history of cancer or symptoms suggestive of cancer (this may also require testing, but may be done differently)

    For more information and to see if lung cancer screening is right for you, go to shouldiscreen to calculate your lung cancer risk and learn about the benefits and harms of screening. Not everyone who meets the initial criteria will be eligible for the clinic.

    To start the process, speak with your primary care physician or complete the Lung Cancer Screening Form and submit to the nurse navigator at lungcancerscreening@metrogr.org or mail to the attention of Lung Cancer Screening Clinic at the Pulmonology Office. For any questions, call the nurse navigator at 616.252.4203 or email lungcancerscreening@metrogr.org.
