Lung CancerMy mother was diagnosed with lung cancer on October 16 2006, she passed away March 16 2007. The doctors thought she just had pneumonia and did not do any chest x-rays. a couple of weeks later she went back to the hospital, they did an x-ray this time and found the cancer. Unfortunately the cancer was to far advanced and had spread to her spine and pelvis. They could not resect the tumor in the lung because the fluid it produced was positive for the cancer. My mother died of lung Adenocarcinoma stage IV. If a person does the research they would find that lung cancer receives a fraction of the funding that breast, prostate and colon cancer receive, when lung cancer kills more than all three of those types put together. People think that lung cancer victims brought the cancer onto themselves because they smoked. Not all lung cancer patients smoked. Breast cancer risks increase if a person is overweight, drinks, smokes and consumes caffeine. I just wish that the government and other people in society would give the number one cancer killer of both men and women the attention it needs, so the patients of this disease have a chance to be cured also.
