Lung cancer is the deadliest cancer among cancer-afflicted Veterans and one of the most common. Nearly 8,000 Veterans are diagnosed and treated for lung cancer every year across VA medical facilities. However, when caught early, lung cancer is treatable.
The National Lung Cancer Screening Day initiative is a collaborative effort, uniting VA with the National Lung Cancer Roundtable established by the American Cancer Society, the American College of Radiology, and the Radiology Healthy Equity Coalition.
