Description: Back in 2010, I was having a lot of abdominal pains. I have a history of peptic ulcer disease. My Internist decided to do a CT scan of my abdomen. At the last minute she added a CT scan of the chest because I had had a persistent cough and I was a former smoker. Sure enough the CT of my abdomen showed some minor irritation, but the CT of my chest showed a small tumor.

My wife was diagnosed with Stage 2a non-small cell lung cancer in August 2011. She passed away this last June. Anything that can be done to stop this horrible disease and the pain it causes to those affected is worth the cost.

Description: I was having preoperative workup done (lab work, etc) before having knee replacement. A chest X-ray was part of the testing. The next day I was called and told doctor wouldn't do the surgery because my X-ray showed I had pneumonia and I should follow up with my primary care physician - which I did.

Whenever I tell people I am a lung cancer survivor, they ask me how I knew I had it. I tell them I had a wheeze, just a little wheeze...and that I had never had a wheeze before. But it wasn't until I got a chest X-ray that it could be ...

Description: When I had my annual exam with my primary care physician in June 2013, I asked him about having a low-dose CT lung scan. I was a smoker during my 20’s and 30’s and my Mom died of lung cancer. My doctor was dubious -- I was healthy, had no indication of any problems, and the test wasn’t covered by insurance. I asked him to check on the cost and he found out it was $185.
