Our clients often ask us if there are screening opportunities for lung cancer. Attorney John P. Comerford discusses lung cancer screening for asbestos-exposed workers in the following video.

Lung cancer screening is recommended for certain adults based on the results of the National Lung Screening Trial. It is important to consult with your health care team to determine whether you are a candidate for lung cancer screening.

If you had substantial exposure to asbestos and you smoked, it’s a no-brainer to get screened. At a minimum, when you’re going through your yearly physical, tell your physician about your previous smoking and/or occupational exposures to asbestos and demand an X-Ray.

Also contact Roswell Park, Strong Memorial Hospital, or some of these top hospitals in Western New York, ask about a screening program. If cancer is found early, it makes a difference for you. Please consider participating in a lung cancer screening program. It could save your life.
