What To Do To Protect Yourself,
If You’re An Ex-smoker?
Screening Tests Are Given
When You Have No Symptoms.
If you were or are a smoker, have a family history of lung cancer or have any of the symptoms, ask your health professional if you should have a lung screening. It is important to remember that your health professional does not necessarily think you have cancer if he or she agrees that you should have a screening test. This is just a precaution.
Not smoking, and quitting if you do, is your best way to prevent lung cancer. We bet you didn’t know that after 10 years of not smoking your chances of developing lung cancer falls to half that of someone who smokes. Research also suggests that healthy lifestyle choices like eating a healthier diet and exercising can help you prevent lung cancer.
