Lung Cancer Screening

Today on the vlog, Dr. Lovoria Williams discusses lung cancer screening. The US Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) created a lung cancer screening guideline after extensive research via a national study that observed the best screening test for lung cancer prediction. The study revealed that an annual low dose CT scan test is the best method for screening lung cancer. The lung cancer screening test is quite unknown so only 5% test whereas breast cancer and colon cancer are more familiar tests and have an 80% test rate.
