What happens when you book your Lung Cancer Screen at The London General Practice?
Your lung cancer screen will be tailored to your personal health background so we make sure that any concerns you may have are answered, whilst at the same time ensuring that your screen is bespoke to your needs and requirements.
The session includes:
30 minutes with one of our experienced Practice Nurses who will carry out a series of base-line checks on your health including taking bloods to test for:
- Height and weight
- Blood pressure
- Haemoglobin (anaemia)
- Blood sugar levels (diabetes)
- Kidneys and liver function
This is then followed by a 45-minute consultation with a doctor to discuss your personal health history, and family or genetic pre-dispositions and any other health concerns, plus an examination.
Depending on the outcome of this consultation, and potentially your blood or genetic tests, the diagnostic scanning and examination options include:
- A physical examination
- Additional blood tests
- Chest X-rays
- CT scan
- PET-CT scan
