If you are fortunate enough as I have been so far, to be a current lung cancer survivor, you are asked to come in once every three months for a CT scan and blood work. The immediate impact of the three month visit should be obvious. Due to the rate in which lung cancer can start up and then spread throughout your body, it’s best to keep a close eye on it at all times. Lung cancer seems to be the Jesse Owens of cancer. It moves fast and with purpose. It’s purpose is easy to explain, cancer cells wish to spread out into different parts of your body and lay there waiting. Just like a cold war spy thriller where the sleeper agent gets a mysterious phone call and an even more mysterious voice utters a code word that activates the spy, cancer cells are waiting to be activated. They can be patient, or they can come right back at you shortly after your treatment has ended.
