Did you know?

Lung and bronchus cancer is most frequently diagnosed among people aged 65-74.Median age at diagnosis is 70 (SEER).

Cigarette smoking is by far the most important risk factor for lung cancer.

Newer tests, such as low-dose spiral computed tomography (CT) scans and molecular markers in sputum, have produced promising results in detecting lung cancers at earlier, more operable stages in high-risk patients.

SOVAH Pulmonology of Martinsville now has a lung nodule clinic to evaluate abnormal lung CT results to expedite treatment and minimize wait times.
