Description: As a Registered Respiratory Therapist and Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist, I have worked with many lung cancer patients.

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.

Description: Early detection of lung cancer, as with all cancers, is important to me because it saved my sister’s life - on 3 separate occasions!

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.

Description: Local doctors thought because I never smoked, was athletic and looked great, I did not need a chest X-Ray for a choking cough that did not go away!

Description: I was selected for a program to take a chest X-ray once a year starting in 1984. In 2002 the x-ray showed I had cancer in my right lower lung (small cell). I was operated on in March of 2003, the lower lobe of right lung was removed. My wife said the surgeon recommended I take radiation and chemo. I never did follow up on that recommendation. I am alive today with no signs of cancer.

Description: Early detection allowed me to get operated on to remove the cancer and to have chemotherapy afterwards. I now go for regular check-ups and CT scans. Plus, I am on an oral medicine targeting the cancer that remains.

Description: I really do think early lung cancer detection is important; however when I tried to obtain a low dose CT scan (I planned to pay out of pocket costs with my own funds) with a script from my physician, they wouldn't do it saying I didn't 'fit' the criteria.
