Send Lung Cancer Survival SOARING Up to 95%
Do you know the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide?
Most people guess breast or colon cancer…
But neither is correct.
It’s lung cancer.
Even more surprising for most folks is you DON’T have to have been a smoker to be a lung cancer victim.
We ALL could be at risk.
So, whether you smoke a pack a day—or never have smoked a day in your life—information showing how to increase the 20-year lung cancer survival rate to 95 percent matters.
But it’s likely NOT the solution you’re thinking of…
I’m not a fan of ALL cancer screenings. But there’s one I’ve recommended for years because it provides a LOT of benefits with little risk:
The low-dose CT scan.
According to a recent study, researchers found that people who received an EARLY lung cancer diagnosis using a low-dose CT scan had a 20-year survival rate of 81 percent.
But as impressive as that is, it gets even better.
In people diagnosed with stage 1A lung cancer, the survival rate increased to 95 percent.
In other words, this low-risk screening test could literally save your life.
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends an annual low-dose CT scan for adults aged 50-80 who…
- has a 20-pack-year smoking history (meaning you smoked a pack a day for 20 years), and
- either currently smokes or quit smoking within the past 15 years.
But here’s the thing. Even if you never smoked, you have an increased risk if…
- you were exposed to second-hand smoke,
- experienced long-term exposure to industrial chemicals,
- or had radon gas in your home
If this applies to you, talk to your doctor about the risks versus the benefits of a low-dose CT scan.
As with most types of cancer, the earlier you catch lung cancer, the greater your chances of surviving.
The current 5-year survival rate for lung cancer caught in the early stage is 63 percent.
That’s not bad, but we can DO better with the low-dose CT scan.
P.S. Recent research uncovered a simple nutrient that can put the brakes on a dangerous decline in lung function. CLICK HERE for the details.
