Lung Cancer Screenings
Experts agree when it comes to cancer treatment, the sooner the disease is detected the better the chance of recovery. That includes lung cancer, but until recently early detection methods for at risk individuals have lagged behind other types of cancer. Now, reliable screening for lung cancer is available, even for those most at risk for the disease –those who have smoked tobacco products for a number of years. Dr. Kalil Al-Nassir is a pulmonary medicine specialist at Houston Methodist San Jacinto Hospital in Baytown. Dr. Al-Nassir said it is best not to wait too long to be screened for lung cancer.
