Dr. Lasley says there are many things you can do to reduce your chances of getting the disease. "So the best thing that you can do to reduce your risk of lung cancer is to number one, not smoke. And if you're already smoking, actually stopping smoking can significantly reduce your risk of developing lung cancer in the future. If you've been smoking recently, within the last 15 years, and you've smoked a pack a day for 30 years, or 2 packs a day for 15 years, then you may also benefit from getting imaging screening. And that's done with a CT scan of the lungs done about every year. And they're looking for nodules. Sometimes when they find a nodule, they may want to do another type of screening test or maybe another CT scan in another six months. Or they may want to take a small piece of that, like a biopsy. They're looking for cancer, but not all lung nodules are cancer. "
