I hear you 100%! I was diagnosed with LC in 1997 at the young age of 45 and was successfully treated even though I was almost Stage 4. The first thing out of everyone's mouth is "Did you smoke?" Treatment was torture; in fact, I nearly died a couple of times. I help by volunteering through ALCASE. LC desparately needs more research/funding. Even though smokers choose to smoke doesn't mean they deserve to get cancer and die. Please everyone, contribute to LC research!
Why they only spend a nickle of every dollar on research. Cancer is the biggest money maker for doctors, hospitals and the drug companies. Obama wants a decrease in the population, so do not look for a cure any time soon.

But President Obama is going to fix EVERYTHING!

He's already taken on the economy, global warming, and healthcare - Can a cure for cancer be far behind?

Amazing true life story, Dr. Weitz has demonstrated a very sensitive side of al doctors and physicians,and its when they have personal battles with the diseases and suffers that they treat in their patients.
It's common and sad that people with no reasons suddenly are diagnosed.
13th World Conference on Lung Cancer (13th WCLC), is a world forum where a lot of useful informationwill be covered visit:

Hope to hear good news about Dr. Weitz health through this topic.

Lung & Metastatic Cancer Mimics

Many pulmonary conditions mimic lung cancer. When a healthcare provider considers a patient's symptoms of illness or injury, reviews the evidence, but arrives at the wrong conclusion about the name or source of that illness or injury, a misdiagnosis results. Sometimes simply referred to as "diagnostic errors," misdiagnosis happens more frequently than most patients realize.

Lung infections mimicking malignancy are not uncommon. A variety of lung infections have radiological features simulating cancer. Nonmalignant conditions, such as pulmonary infections, infarctions and abscesses, may have similar appearances. Other conditions such as sarcoidosis, can also mimic a malignant process. I will provide you with a link to a portrait of some of these masqueraders.

The natives smoked cancer free for generations. The settlers came bringing with them their cancer causing technologies. Save a copy of this article while it lasts.

Air pollution does occurs such problems. Lung cancer is one of biggest disease which needs to diagnosed earlier. With right precautions one can have less chances of lung cancer.
