Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer, killing 422 people every day. The five-year survival rate for lung cancer is 18.6%, among the lowest for all types of cancer. Approximately 8 million people in the U.S. are at high risk for lung cancer and should talk to their doctor about getting screened. However, there’s an opportunity to turn the tide against lung cancer through the new availability of the lifesaving lung cancer screening. If each of these Americans at high risk were screened, about 25,000 lives would be saved.
This potentially lifesaving low-dose CT scan can detect lung cancer in the early stages, when it is more curable. Survival rates are five times higher when lung cancer is detected early, but unfortunately most cases are not diagnosed until later stages.
About the Lung Cancer Awareness Campaign
With World Lung Cancer Day on August 1, now is the perfect time to support the Saved by the Scan public service advertising campaign, brought to you by the American Lung Association’s LUNG FORCE initiative and the Ad Council, which aims to educate Americans about lung cancer screening and the benefits of early detection.
By scheduling PSAs on your print, online, and social media platforms, you could help save lives by raising awareness of the benefits of early detection through lung cancer screening and drive individuals to take a lung cancer screening eligibility quiz at SavedbyTheScan.org.
