Encouraging Veterans to Get Screened for Lung Cancer

Hear from a Navy Veteran and a VA Doctor

Jim Pantelas, a Navy Veteran, has been living with lung cancer for 18 years. He is very well aware of the increased risks for lung cancer for Veterans and is a avid advocate for lung cancer screening for Vets. Dr. Drew Moghanaki, is a radiation oncologist at UCLA Health and Staff Physician at the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System.

“Lung screening in many ways is a win-win for all. The patient wins because their cancer is smaller, it’s more curable, the treatments are much less toxic.”
