People who smoke or have a history of smoking may benefit from an annual lung cancer screening, according to a Mercy Health news release. Using a CT scan, a radiologist can detect lung nodules that may be cancerous. Detecting lung cancer early can provide better health outcomes for patients. Those interested are advised to talk to their physicians about lung cancer screening.
