Lung Screening Program

(228) 575-1775

Lung screening could save your life.

If you’re a smoker or former smoker, early detection of lung cancer is the key to preventing more serious problems. Low-dose computed tomography (CT) lung screening, available at Memorial Hospital, gives you the ability to take that first positive step to safeguard your health.

Screening is recommended for those who:

  • Are a current or a former heavy smoker
  • Have quit smoking within the last 15 years
  • Have no signs or symptoms of lung cancer
  • Are age 55 - 77

Call (228) 575 - 1775 to set up a pre-screening visit.

With early detection, the survival rate for lung cancer increases to as high as 92%. Medicare and most private insurance plans cover lung cancer screening for individuals with no out-of-pocket cost for the patient.
