In 1991 I discovered a lump in my left breast, it was Stage I breast cancer. After a lumpectomy, Chemotherapy and Radiation I stayed cancer free for 15 years. This is not a sad story! I faithfully went for my yearly checkups and was totally thrown for a loop when they found a spot on my lung through my chest x-ray. I had surgery on December 1, 2006 and the lump was cancer so half of my left lung was removed. My story is if not for the breast cancer my lung cancer would have gone undetected until it was much to late for just surgery to remove it. I am still cancer free now and go for my checkups every 4 months. Detection does save lives
