Screening & Genetics

Where You Are:

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. 




Moffitt’s Genetic Risk Assessment Service offers screening, genetic counseling and testing for people who may be at an increased risk for cancer. By identifying high risk families we can help them understand their risk for developing cancer as well as their options for prevention, early detection, and treatment.
