Lung cancer affects nearly 250,000 Americans each year. Preventative screenings are important, especially for individuals aged 55 and older, as the survival rate for lung cancer improves dramatically when the disease is caught in its earliest stages. For individuals who are 55 and older, and who have smoked the equivalent of a pack of cigarettes a day or more for 30 years (or, for instance, two packs a day for 15 years), we invite you to take part in our Florida Hospital Lung Cancer Screening Program.
The Florida Hospital Cancer Institute’s Lung Cancer Screening Program is designed to catch lung cancer in its earliest stages, giving at-risk patients the best possible chance at a full recovery. Participants in this program receive a yearly comprehensive low-dose chest CT scan to look for signs of lung cancer, a consultation with a nurse practitioner who specializes in lung health and cancer treatment, and a personalized, comprehensive lung health plan that provides patients access to the network of experts at the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute, one of the most sought after cancer facilities in the United States.
These physicians are highly respected in the field of diagnosing and treating lung cancer. They offer thoracic cancer patients a range of coordinated, complementary services that use cutting-edge technologies and the latest breakthroughs in cancer research to improve our patients’ prognoses.
As a participant in the Lung Cancer Screening Program, you will work closely with our lung care coordinator, who be your guide throughout the lung cancer screening process. The care coordinator will answer your questions, help you schedule appointments and, if necessary, put you in touch with our comprehensive team of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and radiologists. All of our coordinator services are complimentary.
The Florida Hospital Cancer Institute is accredited by several national cancer organizations for their quality, outcomes and comprehensive care. FHCI is accredited by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer (COC) and the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI). Most recently, our Clinical Research Center has been awarded a $2.1 million grant from the National Cancer Institute’s Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP), allowing FHCI access to NCI’s prevention, control and treatment trials for cancer treatment and prevention.
