It may surprise you to know that lung cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world. But it probably won’t surprise you to find out that over 80% of lung cancers are caused by smoking. November is lung cancer awareness month.

In order to improve the life-threatening trend here in the US, the United States Preventative Task Force, an independent group of national health experts, has approved lung cancer screening protocols for otherwise healthy patients.

The advanced imaging specialists at Florida Hospital Waterman and their  Board Certified Radiologists want you to know about these screening protocols, and how they may help you detect lung cancer early.
