Lung Cancer Screening

According to the American Cancer Society, lung cancer accounts for more cancer deaths than any other type of cancer.  While smoking is the leading risk factor, 13% of lung cancer patients are non-smokers.

Northside Hospital’s Cancer Institute offers lung screening for eligible candidates at a discounted rate. 

Should I Get Screened?
You may be a candidate for lung cancer screening if you are 50 or older and answer “yes” to any of the following questions:

  • Have you been a smoker?

  • Do you have a family history of lung cancer?

  • Have you been exposed to asbestos?

For questions, or to determine if you are eligible, call (404) 531-4444.

Smoking Cessation Program
As part of our comprehensive approach to prevention and early detection, Northside offers a Smoking Cessation Program to help individuals quit smoking.  Northside Hospital’s Smoking Cessation Program offers a seven-week class that educates participants about the hazards of smoking, the benefits of quitting and strategies/skills to cope with urges.  The class is conducted primarily in a group setting, with face-to-face interaction that allows participants to learn from each other’s experiences, but also includes web based sessions for convenience.  For additional information or to register for a class, contact 404 780-7653 or
