Screening and Prevention

Screening is the process of looking for cancer before any symptoms appear. Screening can allow for earlier detection of lung cancer. When cancers are found early, before they have spread to other parts of the body, they are often easier to treat and have better outcomes. Visit our lung cancer screening FAQ for more information.

Prevention means taking steps to lower your risk of developing certain types of lung cancer. At Dartmouth-Hitchcock Tobacco Treatment Program we can help you quit the use of tobacco as one of these important steps.
