Screening Methods for Early Diagnosis of Lung Cancer in Current or Former Smokers

This trial studies methods of detecting lung cancer at an earlier stage in current or former smokers with a special type of computed tomography (CT) scan and by testing genes and proteins in biospecimens (blood, urine, sputum, and tissue samples) collected at the time of bronchoscopy (examination of the airway). Analyzing these methods may provide an early detection of lung cancer in current or former smokers when it is more amenable to a cure.
