Lung

 

Provincial lung screening program coming in 2022.

Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer death in Canada and worldwide, primarily affecting people age 50 and above. 70% of all lung cancers are currently diagnosed at an advanced stage, and when symptoms are already present.

A provincial lung cancer screening program has been announced that will mean more treatment options and a faster recovery for those that are at high risk of lung cancer.

The BC Lung Screening Trial is ongoing for those interested in participating in a study for high-risk lung screening.
