Are you a current/former smoker?
1 in 7 smokers will develop lung cancer. The vast majority will succumb to the disease.
Are you concerned about lung cancer?
Lung cancer is a silent killer. The majority of individuals are not diagnosed until the disease is in the advanced stage when it is no longer curable.
In the past radiography was the only way to detect lung cancer early. However, continued exposure to radiation, high false-positive rates, and increased costs make chest X-ray and CT scanning unrealistic choices for most patients.
A new “realistic” option to aid in the early detection of lung cancer is now available. PAULA’s test is a simple blood test performed on a yearly basis in patients at high-risk for lung cancer. PAULA’s Test, indicates the likelihood of a patient having lung cancer now and is used by your doctor to determine the need for follow-up radiological testing. By using PAULA’s Test patients increase the likelihood that cancer is detected in the early stage when it is curable by surgery. Furthermore they reduce their exposure to unnecessary radiation, time-off from work waiting at the radiology clinic, and chances of being falsely diagnosed.
