Lung Cancer Screening
Moffitt Cancer Center offers low-dose CT lung cancer screening. Based on national guidelines, the lung cancer screening targets people between the ages of 55 to 74, who have more than a 30 pack-year history of cigarette smoking who currently smoke or have quit smoking in the past 15 years. (A 30 pack-year is equivalent to one pack per day for 30 years, two packs per day for 15 years, etc.) For those who don’t meet the criteria, a physician’s order is required. Appointments may also be made with a pulmonologist in Moffitt’s lung cancer program to discuss the risks and benefits of screening. To schedule a chest CT screening, call the New Patient Appointment Center at 813-745-3980 or 1-888-860-2778. Appointments are available Monday through Saturday at Moffitt. For your convenience, screenings are also available at Moffitt Cancer Center at International Plaza.
