Why get screened?

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death for both men and women worldwide; however, it is currently the only one of the top four deadliest cancers, lung, prostate, breast and colorectal, that is not routinely screened.

Based on the published findings of the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST), we now have confirmation that through CT screening, lives of people at high risk for developing lung cancer can be saved.

Private insurers and the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) do not currently cover low- dose CT lung screening, and most hospitals charge a self-pay rate of at least $350. Beverly Hospital is determined to help bring awareness and accessibility of this testing to ALL people at high risk.

Locations

These are currently offered at Addison Gilbert Hospital in Gloucester and Lahey Outpatient Center, Danvers.

A screening does not obligate you to return to a Beverly Hospital facility for any further screenings, for evaluation of any findings, or for any other services that are provided by Beverly Hospital facilities.
