Diagnosing & Treating Lung Cancer Early
Have you been a smoker most of your life? Do you have a family history of lung cancer? Do you suffer from COPD or other lung issues?
If you said yes to any of these, have you ever wondered if you could possibly have lung cancer but have been afraid to find out?
Don’t hesitate learning more about lung screening because at Halifax Health, our thoracic and pulmonary experts are equipped with breakthrough diagnostic technology to detect lung cancer in its earliest stage as well as treat it. Why is it so important to detect lung cancer early? Because clinical studies have shown that when lung cancer is detected and treated in stage 1, the ten-year survival rate may be as high as 92 % vs. 15 % in late stage.*
And don’t wait for symptoms to occur, because symptoms are often an indicator of lung cancer in the late stages of the disease. This makes the treatment more problematic and reduces the overall survival rate.
