WASHINGTON (AP) -- Some current or former heavy smokers may benefit from a new lung cancer test even if they're 65 or older - although they experience more false alarms, suggests an analysis that comes as Medicare is debating whether to pay for the scans.
A bold new way to test cancer drugs started Monday in hundreds of hospitals around the U.S. In a medical version of speed dating, doctors will sort through multiple experimental drugs and match patients to the one most likely to succeed based on each person's unique tumor gene profile.
New research finds that women who smoke today have a much greater risk of dying from lung cancer than they did decades ago compared to those who never smoked. That is partly because they are starting younger and smoking more than women used to.
