Expert Video - What questions should I ask my doctor about screening for lung cancer?
Thoracic surgeon Dr. Fatima Wilder discusses the types of questions you may want to ask your doctor about lung cancer screening, including: Why should I get screened? Where can I get a low-dose CT scan? How long will it take to get the results? Will someone explain the results to me in a way that I can understand? What are the next steps for my screening test? Will I need more interventions? What happens if something is found?
