New Report: South Dakota Among Top States for Early Diagnosis, Lung Cancer Screening Rates

Surgical Treatment: Lung cancer can often be treated with surgery if it is diagnosed at an early stage and has not spread widely.

Arizona was in the bottom tier in three of six categories in a new American Lung Association report, which put the state dead-last for the number of patients who receive treatment after getting a diagnosis of lung cancer.

"We know, from lots of good public health science, that raising the price of commercial tobacco products is one of the most effective ways to support people quitting", McKone said.

As for why the disease isn't caught right away, Wininsky said "Some people have very obvious symptoms and they do see their doctor, but in some cases, too many, unfortunately, the symptoms don't even present themselves, or they are not obvious symptoms that somebody would automatically associate with lung cancer". It shows the average survival rate for lung cancer in Pennsylvania rose to about 24%.

While Michigan is above the national average in lung cancer survival, screening, and treatment rates, it ranks low in catching the disease early, according to the American Lung Association.

"Lung cancer screening is a powerful tool that save lives", said McKone.

Zhu added that further research is needed to verify the duration of the immune response induced by the vaccination. Volunteers in the trial were put into groups and given one or two doses of the vaccine or a dummy jab.

Arizona was in the majority of states, along with 37 others, that cover lung cancer screening under the state's Medicaid program. Almost 23% of Pennsylvanians diagnosed with lung cancer receive surgery, which is the same as the national average.

Strother agreed that "screening is the key to finding lung cancer early when it's much more curable". That's better than the national rate of 22.6%.

Latinos are 39 percent less likely to receive treatment at all.

"Minnesota is above average in that and for survival, we're actually second in the country". The patient lies on a table as an X-ray machine creates an image of the lungs, with the scan taking only a few minutes and resulting in no pain, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

However, checks in November found more cancer in her lungs and she was diagnosed with multiple primary lung cancer.
