Breathe easier knowing you got screened for lung cancer.

Free Walk-In Lung Screenings on November 4

UnityPoint Health is offering NO COST lung cancer screenings for eligible Central Illinois community members on Thursday, November 4, 2021 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. While walk-ins are accepted, calling ahead for pre-screening will save you time the day of our event, and confirm your eligibility. 

Please review the criteria below, then call our lung screening specialist at (309) 672-3189 for pre-screening.

Determine Your Eligibility:

  • Current smokers between ages 50-80 with at least 20 year history smoking at least 1 pack per day.
  • Former smokers between ages 50-80 who have quit smoking within the last 15 years with same history as above.
  • Current or former smokers with any questions regarding screening eligibility, please call (309) 672-3189 for assistance.

Additional Criteria to Consider:

  • Patients who have had a CT Chest, CT Angio Chest, or PET imaging within the last 12 months would not be eligible until one year from that exam.
  • Patients who have been prescribed an antibiotic for pneumonia or acute respiratory infection within past 12 weeks are not eligible x 12 weeks.
  • Patients with smoking history greater than 20 years but with less than 1 pack per day history may also be eligible for a screening if they have history of COPD, emphysema, or cancer or have an immediate family member (parent or sibling) with history of lung cancer.
  • Current or former smokers with personal history of lung cancer are not eligible until two years after being released by their oncologist.
  • Current or former smokers with current symptoms are not eligible (chest pain, fever, unexpected weight loss, or coughing up blood). Patients who are having any of these symptoms are encouraged to seek medical assistance.
