What caused your lung cancer? Submit Your Comment

Comment from: randal27, 65-74 Male (Patient) Published: February 16

I quit smoking in 2006. Five years later (2011) I was diagnosed with lung cancer in my left lung close to the middle part where the air for this lung enters. As a result of having quit smoking for 5 years, my right lung had recovered enough to supply oxygen for normal functions without taking oxygen. I have the left lung removed, and fortunately did not have to undergo chemotherapy or radiation. Five years later I have a spot on my lung that is bigger than last year, so I am having tests run.
