How can I request a test for lung cancer - and should I if I don't want it treated?

In brief: If you do not want

Treatment, why waste money getting tested.
Have you considered whether you want burial or cremation? Need to make one of those choices. If you have greater than 35 pack years and are over 55, you are eligible for ct-screen. If you still smoke, lung cancer is not your only worry.

If you don't want to get treated, don't get tested. Why are you worried about lung cancer at your age anyway? Are you depressed? If you smoke, quit smoking, get yourself checked up and start a new life!
