SwedishAmerican to offer free life-saving lung scans

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) - SwedishAmerican will offer free life-saving lung scans this November and December.

The quick, painless lung scan normally costs $150.

A doctor's referral is not needed, but certain criteria must be met:

— Age 55-74
— Current or former smoker
— At least a 30-pack year history of smoking (cigars, cigarettes, etc.)
— Former smokers must have quit within the past 15 years.
— No history of lung cancer in the past

Convenient times are available at SwedishAmerican Hospital in Rockford and SwedishAmerican Medical Center/Belvidere. You can call 779-696-7099 for more information.

Lung cancer is the second most-common cancer in both men and women and often goes undetected until the cancer has reached an advanced stage.
