Annual checks for lung cancer recommended

American Lung Association
American Lung Association

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KFGO AM) The American Lung Association supports a government panel's recommendation -- encouraging heavy smokers age 55 and over to have an annual C-T scan, to check for lung cancer.

Lung cancer is often deadly because it doesn't usually start causing symptoms until advanced stages.

The recommendation would also mean many health insurance companies would have to start covering the cost of the test.
