Those who are over 50 and have smoked for at least 20 years may qualify for a lung screening through mednet. 

Lung cancer is the most common type of cancer worldwide — around 240,000 new cases of lung cancer will be diagnosed in the United States this year, mostly among smokers. Surviving lung cancer starts with a scan. If found in its earliest stage, lung cancer is more likely to be successfully treated. 

For additional information on lung screening, contact Dr. Ashley Prosper at aprosper@mednet.ucla.edu or call (626) 533.3616.
