'Enormous Progress' in Reducing Cancer Does Not Include Lung Cancer
Date:2/25/2008

mponent in achieving these high survival rates and recommends annual mammograms for all women over 40 even though randomized controlled trials have not ended the debate about mammograms for women under 50.

PSA testing for prostate cancer and CT scans for lung cancer are currently undergoing randomized controlled trials and the US government gives both screening tests the same "I" rating: insufficient evidence to recommend for or against.

However, while mute on lung cancer screening, ACS strongly supports offering a PSA test to all men over 50 and urges that they be given information on prostate cancer screening "so they can make an informed decision."

"Why shouldn't those at risk for lung cancer be treated the same way and be allowed to make an informed decision with their doctors about the risks and benefits of C scans. There should not be such a double standard," Fenton-Ambrose stated.

Lung Cancer Alliance (http://www.lungcanceralliance.org) is the only national non-profit organization dedicated solely to patient support and advocacy for those living with or at risk for lung cancer. LCA is committed to leading the movement to reverse decades of stigma and neglect by empowering those with or at risk for the disease, elevating awareness and changing health policy.
