Abstract: Overall, combined investment in tobacco control and lung cancer screening could see major reductions in the lung cancer burden, and could offset the growing costs of targeted and immunotherapies for lung cancer. As new data about lung cancer screening accrue, optimisation of prevention strategies, as well as trade-offs between drivers of screening efficiency and cost-effectiveness, can be informed by modelling and implementation studies. Overall, lung cancer screening is an opportunity to prevent thousands of lung cancer deaths, especially for former smokers who make up an increasing proportion of lung cancer cases.
