CT lung cancer screening

I think anyone who was a former smoker should have one ct scan. Mayo found my lung cancer on a general x ray. And said I probably had it for 6 or so years. So now I have 2 surgeries and 2 rounds of radiation. And ct scans are either every 3 or 6 months now. . When I was diagnosed I had. No symptoms. I was a smoker that quit in 1998

sakota9. Thank you for your reply to this. I wonder why such things aren't done (CT scans) as a natural parr of former smokers as well as maybe done for those over 55 years of age. You as so correct–if you'd had a simple CT scan, so much could have been avoided.
