We’ve recently written about the tragedy of nonsmokers getting lung cancer. Women are more vulnerable to this. If there was a simple, inexpensive, painless test for lung cancer that could be taken early, before symptoms show up, would we take it? Or would it be like it can be with the AIDS test and mammograms–people don’t want to know?
There IS a test for the world?s deadliest cancer that can catch the disease when the tumors are smaller than a pea. If you’ve ever smoked, or been exposed to secondhand smoke, you may want to take it. However, doctors are waging an uphill battle to get nervous current and former smokers to get this special kind of X-ray test, even though it costs as little as $300.
