Breathe Easier.
Learn Your Lung Cancer Risks.

Early lung cancer shows no signs or symptoms, but if caught early, is it often treatable.

If you or someone in your family is a current or former smoker, you probably worry about their cancer risk. Calvert’s new lung health program is here to help you breathe easier.

Whether you are a current smoker, a previous smoker or even a non-smoker who has been exposed to environmental toxins or secondhand smoke, your lung health matters.

For more information, contact the Lung
Health Program by
calling 410-286-7992.

Our new lung health program provides:

  • Expanded tobacco cessation
    resources and initiatives
  • A dedicated Lung Nurse Navigator
    to answer any questions you may
    have, any step of the way
  • A lung cancer screening
    (low dose CT scan) through Calvert
    Medical Imaging Center
  • A multidisciplinary team approach
    for all of our patients, to include
    a lung patient care conference
    comprised of medical and radiation
    oncologists, radiologists and
    interventional radiologists,
    area pulmonologists and lung surgeons.

    To qualify for the low dose
    CT scan, you must:
  • Be between the ages of 55-77
  • Have a ‘30 pack’ smoking history
    (means that they smoked one pack
    a day for 30 years or two
  • packs per day for 15 years, etc.)
  • Be a current smoker or have quit
    within the past 15 years
