Screening for Lung Cancer

Drs. Nicole Ezer and Anne Gonzalez are interviewed on the benefits of lung cancer screening.

In honor of Lung Cancer Awareness month, Drs. Nicole Ezer and Anne Gonzalez speak with Tarah Schwartz of the MUHC Foundation’s Health Matters, on the benefits of lung cancer screening. Screening allows for 60%-70% of patients to be diagnosed with the disease at an earlier stage. At at early stage medical interventions such as surgery can cure the disease without the need for additional treatment. The medical community are enthusiastic about the results of screening, as traditionally, 60%-70% of lung cancer has been diagnosed in its later stages, allowing only for treatment and disease management, rather than a cure.
