Screening for Lung Cancer

In October, I wrote a letter to the editor in response to an Op-ED piece on screening for lung cancer that appeared in the NYT. (To read the Op-Ed piece click here.) The question of screening for lung cancer in the Medicare population is very complex, however I was promted to write the letter because the Op-Ed spoke about winning the war on lung cancer with mention of the words cigarette, smoking, or tobacco. The NYT edited out this critique, but published the rest of what I had to say.
