    Hi @camila,

    Screening recommendations can vary by individual (https://lungcancer.net/diagnosis/screening/) but often are recommended yearly, though more is being looked at for screening recommendations for men and women: https://lungcancer.net/news/new-study-suggests-different-screening-intervals-for-men-and-women/ We always recommend checking with your doctor or healthcare team for individual recommendations – how did the CT go? Hope this information helps!

    Thinking of you.
