Get Screened!

UVA Cancer Center now offers a low-dose CT screening program for lung cancer. Make an appointment and encourage those you know to get screened, too. If cancer is detected early, it is much easier to treat and chances of survival are much greater than if cancer is caught when symptoms are present.
