Smoking is one of the leading causes of lung cancer and, per the CDC, within 10 to 15 years after quitting smoking, the risk of lung cancer decreases by 50%. The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines recommend that high risk patients be screened for lung cancer with low-dose CT after shared patient and provider decision making. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recommends annual screening for lung cancer in adults aged 50-77, who have a 20-pack year history and currently smoke or have quit within the past 15 years. Additionally, social determinants of health (SDOH) play a large role in smoking cessation and access to lung cancer screening (LCS).
