Expert Video - How and where can I get screened for lung cancer?
Thoracic surgeon Dr. Fatima Wilder provides an overview of how and where to get screened for lung cancer. She recommends working with your primary care provider to determine if you meet the eligibility criteria and the benefits of having a low-dose CT scan. They will refer you to a screening center and will also work with your insurance company to ensure the low-dose CT scan is covered so that you are not left with unnecessary costs.
