Aspirus offering Lung Cancer Screening Event in Wausau

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society. Finding it early may make it easier to treat and decrease the risk of death.

Aspirus Cancer Care – Wausau is proud to offer a Lung Cancer Screening Event on Friday, September 9. Screenings will take place between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm for individuals at high-risk for lung cancer such as:

  • Current or former smokers (quit in the last 15 years)
  • Ages 50-77 (80 for private insurance)
  • More than 20 pack years
  • No existing symptoms of lung cancer such as coughing blood or unintentional weight loss

During the 20-minute screening appointment, patients and providers will discuss risks and next steps. Patients will then have the option to schedule a CT scan for a later date.

The screening is free, and the CT scan is covered by most insurance plans.
