My husband was just diagnosed with Stage 2 COPD .
He can do a chest CT for screening
Hello and welcome in HCM
I can understand your concern
According to his disease diagnosed recently and especially his family history of lung cancer if he was my patient yes I would recommend him to do a lung cancer screening.However first of all you should know that until now there is no specific test or blood tests that might completely and exactly exclude lung cancer in screening it.
Nevertheless in such situation in patients with COPD we recommend doing a chest CT especially in them with risks of having lung cancer (family history and COPD)
So please discuss with his doctor for the above and I am sure he/she will order it for him.Do not worry because not every COPD patient will encounter lung cancer in his lifetime according to several studies of the literature.
Hope to have been helpful
