Myrtle Beach Delayed Lung Cancer Diagnosis
Lung cancer is a common form of cancer that is often discovered in people who have been chronic smokers. However, smokers are not the only individuals who develop lung cancer. There are other risk factors and symptoms that may indicate lung cancer is present. Doctors should be thorough in their investigation of any symptoms, as a delay in diagnosing or misdiagnosis of lung cancer can be life threatening.

It is important that your doctor do as many tests as necessary to determine the location, size, type and any other aspects of the lung cancer that has been detected. The previous thought has been that X-rays for cancer are not useful and just expose the patient to unnecessary radiation. However, new research has shown that X-rays and CT scans may in fact be very useful in making determinations and diagnoses about lung cancer. The extra cost of these tests, and extra radiation, may prove lifesaving.
