Pickleball Injury Leads to Lung Cancer Diagnosis

Recommended Posts

My husband is a pickleball player and instructor in our over-55 community. Several times now people on the court have complained of shortness of breath. He always makes them stop playing and urges them to see their doctor. One woman recently needed a triple bypass, and she says that pickleball saved her life. The woman featured in the article below can say the same thing.

This is great. We need more awareness that shortness of breath can be a danger sign. I went to the GP when I was getting winded before finishing 9 holes of golf, and then 8 and the 7… But initially just blamed poor conditioning after lockdowns.
