X-Ray Screening for Lung Cancer

Last Modified: January 7, 2013

Question:

My father died of lung cancer at 57 years old. He was a 3 pack a day smoker. I am now 52 years old and have been an on-again, off-again smoker (1 pack a day) for 30 years. I had quit once for 7 years and two other time for 1-2 years. I no longer smoke. Would you suggest that someone in my position get an xray because I am at risk? Thank you.
