False Beliefs a Threat to Lung Cancer Patients

Recommended Posts

  • 1 month later...

As stated in my signature, I have had two surgeries for lung cancer. Believe it not, I have had people say to me, that the surgeries caused my cancer to spread. Hogwash Why cancer stikes one organ, over another, then spreads, is not entirely understood. If it was understood then we wouldn't have metastases. Although I hope and pray that the liver mets can be taken care of, I fully realize that my battle with lung cancer is far from being over.

To the best of my knowledge, I was cancer free for 18 months. All of us with lung cancer are fully aware that the recurrance rate is high, but we continue to go on. I still am praying for the cure. It may not come in my lifetime, but I am sure it will come in my children's lifetime.
