aurora06 Posted July 22, 2006 Share Posted July 22, 2006 I thought I would post here since others may be just as angered as I am about attitudes toward LC screening. Please correct me if I'm wrong but the only two I'm aware of are sputum tests (no new advances there!!!) and Spiral CT scan ( ins. refuses to pay!!) I know the argument the med prof has about using the ct scan to screen but that argument seems very circular. They say the key to success in tx is early detection as in the case of breast, colon , prostate, etc BUT there ARE screening tests for those types of cancer but how does the med prof propose early detection of lung CA. Sorry to ramble but the attitude about early detection or the lack thereof for Lung CA is ALL wrong and costing people their lives or if treatment helps it's a long hard road because the ca isn't found, often, until it's advanced BECAUSE of lack of screening. MODERATOR..... if this topic is addressed in another forum please let me know or move my post to the appropriate forum. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
