Individuals from Bradenton, FL, who are considering a routine lung cancer screening test can turn to nearby Moffitt Cancer Center for a comprehensive range of options. Using highly advanced imaging scans, which can often detect abnormal cells before they spread throughout the body, Moffitt’s team is committed to enhancing both outcomes and quality of life for at-risk individuals. We use low-dose CT scans, together with medical history evaluations and physical exams, to assess each patient and provide tailored recommendations for prevention, risk reduction and, if needed, lung cancer treatment.
Lung cancer screenings are recommended for anyone who meets all of the following criteria:
- A history of heavy tobacco use
- Current or former smokers with a 20-pack year smoking history (pack year = total # of years smoked X # of packs smoked per day)
- Between 50 and 77 years old
People who have other risk factors, such as a personal or family history of lung cancer or a history of sustained, high-dose exposure to known carcinogens, may also wish to discuss screening options with an oncologist or pulmonologist.
At Moffitt, we have been named a Screening Center of Excellence by the Lung Cancer Alliance. Additionally, we are a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, recognized for our ongoing contributions to the early detection and prevention of cancer.
Moffitt welcomes patients from Bradenton, Florida, and all surrounding areas, and referrals are never required. To request an appointment for a lung cancer screening at any of our convenient locations, call 1-888-663-3488 or submit a new patient registration form online.
