Detecting lung cancer early, when it is easiest to treat, can save lives.

Only about 21% of all people diagnosed with lung cancer will survive 5 years or more, BUT if it’s caught before it spreads, the chance for 5-year survival improves dramatically to close to 60%.

People with a long history of tobacco use should speak to their doctors about getting annual low-dose CT scans. If found early, lung cancer is not only treatable, but often curable.

There is a vital need for new modes of early detection to find lung cancer early across populations. Scientists today are working on promising blood and sputumMucus and other matter brought up from the lungs by coughing tests. LUNGevity has always invested in early detection research to improve outcomes and save lives.
