With twenty plus years in healthcare, not much shocks me. But, lung cancer — lung cancer is a different story. When I learned that lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer-related deaths for women, I admit I was astounded. I thought it had to be breast cancer — breast cancer gets so much attention. But no. It really is lung cancer. In fact, each year lung cancer kills more people than breast, prostate and colon cancers combined. The statistics are staggering.
