Animation - Early Detection and Screening for Lung Cancer in Black Americans

This animation provides an overview of the importance of early detection and screening for lung cancer in Black Americans. Lung cancer is the leading cause of death from cancer for Black American men and the second leading cause among Black American women. More Black American men die from lung cancer each year than men from any other group. For Black Americans at high risk for lung cancer, screening can save lives – and the best time to get screened is before you feel sick. Watch this animation to learn about the symptoms that could be caused by lung cancer, the risks and benefits of lung cancer screening, who is eligible for screening, what happens during a lung cancer screening test (low-dose CT scan), and questions to ask your doctor about this procedure.
