Lung cancer is one of the most difficult cancers to detect, and is often not detected until it is difficult or impossible to treat. Oftentimes, lung cancer is detected when a patient is being tested for another condition. Malignant lung tissue, for instance, may be detected when a patient is receiving a chest X-ray for a heart condition. When warning signs of lung cancer exist, but doctors fail to take appropriate measures, patients are left to suffer unnecessarily.
