Re: Asking an opinion
Hello. I'm new to this site and basically joined to see what help I could give my mother. She does have Stage IV NSCLC with mets to brain, bone and adrenal glands. Mother quit smoking cold turkey in 2007 after smoking for 50 years. She had absolutely no symptoms. She had an x-ray taken of her back for osteoporsis and they found a spot on her lung. This was in 2009. She's alive today and still fighting. If I thought I had lung cancer, I would ask for a chest x-ray. If you're instincts tell you something is amiss, listen to them, ask for an x-ray. The earlier lung cancer is caught the better the prognosis. This is just my opinion. Good luck, I hope it's nothing.
