St. Charles is Offering Free Lung Cancer Screenings for Smokers and Former Smokers

The screenings are made possible thanks to funding from the St. Charles Foundation.


Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. but if caught early, treatment is much more successful.


Jessica Keegan is the cancer screening coordinator for St. Charles.


"We are looking to diagnose individuals before they have symptoms.  Usually lung cancer patients don't know they have the disease until the later stages and by promoting the screenings we get individuals in to be screened."


Starting Monday September 15th, people between the ages of 55 and 74 who are current smokers or who have quit in the last fifteen years can receive the screenings.


If you are interested, call your primary care provider to schedule an appointment.
