Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States and 8 million current or former smokers are at high risk. To help local individuals who may be at high risk, Major Health Partners and X-Ray Physicians of Shelbyville are partnering to offer free lung screenings during Lung Cancer Awareness month (November) to those who qualify.
Eligibility for the free lung screenings at MHP, includes those who are:
- smokers or recent former smokers
- age 55 to 80
- in general, good health
Lung cancer can be treated if found early. And no matter how much a person smoked, early detection of lung cancer could save someone’s life. Now through the end of November, eligible individuals can call 317.421.5707 or visit mymhp.org/lung to learn more and schedule a free lung scan.
