Lung Cancer Screening

Akron General's McDowell Cancer Center is committed to the early detection and treatment of cancer. Screenings are the best way to find cancer early and provide care as quickly as possible. We're please to offer a new, low-cost $25 screening for lung cancer. For more information, call 330-344-LUNG (5864).

The process includes four simple steps:
1. Talk to your doctor about a lung cancer screening especially if:

 

  • You are a current or former heavy smoker between the ages of 55 and 74
  • You have a history of cigarette smoking of at least one pack per day for 30 years.
  • You are a former smoker who quit within the previous 15 years.

2. Obtain a doctor's order. Call 330-344-LUNG (5864) to schedule your appointment.
3. If you don't have a doctor or doctor's order, call 330-344-LUNG (5864) to talk with our Cancer Care Coordinator.
4. Schedule your appointment. Pay $25 at time of low-dose CT scan.
