The Importance of Lung Cancer Screenings
Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer death in the United States for both men and women. More men die of lung cancer than the next two most deadly types of cancer for men (prostate and colorectal) combined, and more women die of lung cancer (59,910) than breast cancer (43,170).¹
Screening is used to detect lung cancer early, when it is more likely to be curable. If lung cancer is caught before it spreads, the likelihood of surviving 5 years or more improves to 63 percent.²
