Lung Cancer Screening Guidelines

The American Cancer Society recommends that clinicians with access to high-volume, high-quality lung cancer screening and treatment centers should initiate a discussion about lung cancer screening with patients aged 55 to 74 years who have at least a 30-pack-year smoking history, currently smoke or have quit within the past 15 years, and who are in relatively good health. Core elements of a clinician-patient discussion are provided to enable informed and shared decision making.
