Lung Cancer Screening Program

Lung Cancer Screening Program

​​​​​​​ The Kentucky Lung Cancer Screening Program has three goals:

  1. Increase lung cancer screening;
  2. Reduce morbidity and mortality from lung cancer; and
  3. Reduce the cost of treating lung cancer.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in Kentucky. However, early diagnosis increases the odds for successful treatment. Evidence-based screening among eligible Kentuckians is a safe way to catch lung cancer early.

If you are between the ages of 50 and 80, have a smoking history of 20 pack years and either are a current smoker or have quit in the last 15 years, you may be eligible for low-dose CT lung cancer screening. Talk to your healthcare provider or visit the links to the right for more information.
