Many individuals, especially Blacks, at high risk of lung cancer are not eligible for screening by U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) guidelines, according to a new study. "Current national screening guidelines for lung cancer can induce disparities related to race, socioeconomic status, and comorbidity, and hence a more comprehensive screening approach such as risk-based screening should be considered," Dr. Summer S. Han of Stanford University School of Medicine, in Stanford, California, told Reuters Health by email.
