Diagnosing lung cancer? It's about time
Learning whether an abnormal spot is lung cancer or a benign mass can
take weeks, even months of tests and evaluations. The wait can be unnerving, and scary. It can also
have consequences on your health.
Expedited diagnostic programs, like
the one now being offered at our Chicago-area hospital, can cut down
the waiting time considerably. The Illinois hospital’s "rapid lung-nodule diagnostic" program begins working even before a patient arrives.
Is it possible to have lung cancer and not have symptoms?
Lung cancer may be present for months before any symptoms emerge.
Answering your questions about lung cancer
