I’m An Ex-smoker. 
How Can I Protect Myself?

 

Get A Screening Test. 

If you were or are a smoker, have a family history of lung cancer, or have any symptoms, talk to your health professional. She or he may recommend that you have a lung screening test. It is important to remember that your health professional does not necessarily think you have cancer. This is just a precaution.

Not smoking, and quitting if you do, is your best way to prevent lung cancer. Did you 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.
