Take the next step

If you believe you are at risk for lung cancer, it's important to speak with your doctor about a screening. The Cancer Center at Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC) is now offering a new lung cancer screening exam, which uses low-dose CT scans for earlier detection, when treatment for lung cancer is most successful.

Low-dose CT scans are available at locations in Gainesville, Braselton and Barrow.

Ask your doctor today if you are eligible for a screening and call:
