THE BRONX - November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month and one Bronx hospital is screening residents for the disease.

Montefiore Einstein Center for Cancer Care has a CT scan to screen for lung cancer. The procedure administers low X-rays to the chest and is available to heavy smokers between the ages of 55 to 74.

The screening takes about 5 to 10 minutes and those undergoing the test should speak to their doctor about a referral.
