Attention Smokers!

Lakeridge Health is one of three hospitals in Ontario that is participating in a pilot project to determine the feasibility of a province-wide lung cancer screening project.

They will accept referrals for those between the ages of 55 and 74 and have smoked cigarettes daily for at least 20 years (not necessarily consecutively).

If you are interested talk to your doctor to see if you are eligible.

If you have any of the following, you are NOT eligible:
  • Have previously been diagnosed with lung cancer
  • Are under surveillance for lung nodules
  • You are being investigated for coughing up blood
  • You are being investigated for unexplained weight loss

Thanks

Your friendly Ajax Harwood Clinic Staff
