CT lung cancer screening

Posted by joelars @joelars, Jul 7, 2019

I listened to a discussion concerning cancer screening. It was the opinion of the oncologists that doctors continue screenings late into the patients life where the risks of radiation exposure outweigh any benefits because the patient doesn't have enough years, statistically, to live. Does anyone know about what age is the right age to discontinue cancer screenings?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Lung Cancer Support Group.


@merprep the only meds I got were the antibiotics I picked up yesterday following his reading of the x-ray.

@joelars- Yes, but did he give you a different antibiotic than the last time?


@merpreb I don't know. He didn't give me the last one the hospital that released me did. I didn't memorize the names. I don't know if he read the hospital records. I know they were sent to him.
