Lung cancer screening demonstration project
The lung cancer screening demonstration project offers Quebecers aged 55 to 74 with an elevated risk of developing lung cancer a range of services aimed at screening for lung cancer and reducing the risks of developing it or dying of it. Participants in this project must meet a number of eligibility requirements.
The project consists of three major goals:
- Reducing the risk of death from lung cancer since the goal of the project is to detect cancers at an early stage of their development.
- Detecting lung cancer with an annual low-dose CT chest scan, the main medical test used in the project.
- Reducing the risk of developing lung cancer. The project offers smoking cessation support to all smokers that come into contact with project practitioners. The best way to reduce the risk of developing lung cancer related to tobacco is to quit smoking.
