Cancer Screening: Fall update

The CDC in Atlanta has published data that cancer has overtaken heart disease as the #1 killer in the United States.  Men and women are living longer.  Better diets and exercize have made the

100+ age group the fastest growing decade!   Everyone accepts PSA and mammography screening for men and women.  Lung cancer is now the leading tumor, however.  The National Lung Cancer Screening Trial (NLST) is now in its 15th year.

  • Patients with airways disease have a 100% higher risk of lung cancer than controls.  COPD (airways disease) is undiagnosed in 60-80% in population studies.
  • Should all individuals over 60 years of age undergo CT screening every five years (as some in the literature suggest)?
  • An ultra-lowdose CT protocol (without contrast) reduces radiation dose to 4% of standard CT is now available
  • Federal regulations require that radiation dose be incorporated into all CT reports (CT machines automatically produce this data).

CT screening of the lungs is inevitable.  Stage I lung cancer has a 90% cure rate.

The Farmer's Almanac predicts an unusually cold winter.  The Almanac has a great track record.

Best regards,

Dr. Bob
