  1. Hi my name is David Adams I have smoked for 30 years and Lately I have been feeling very tired and have back pain that doesn’t goes away I like to know how to have a lung cancerous test or screening test

    1. Hey David, It might be a good idea to reach out to your primary care provider to get the process started. You and your provider can start a discussion about what testing would be best.

  2. My Mom and two Aunts died of lung Cancer. My brother is dyeing of liver cancer and another Uncle died of blood cancer. I was a smoker up until the age of 25. I am 50 years old and every now and again can hear a tiny wheeze in my lungs. Is there a way I can check for lung cancer
