Is Cancer Creeping Back ~ Bad Dreams? ~ The Verge of Lung Cancer ~ MobiusTripz Lyrics ~ Cancer Kills

I want to sleep real bad, however after last nights dreams of such vivid declarations from my doctors of lymphatic cancer and lung cancer...wake has me for now and ever more, mesmerized...

...and my so long ignored requests to see an endoctrinologist in reality by my medical professionals, oh well, who cares in the end...I am but a deficit!

...and why do I continue accept this treatment?...because it is the best there scoff, as so do I.

...which I have not and so documented...and therefore,...I document my dying days..., where I know within, that science and medicine stares at a humble broken man and scoffs...yet again in my sullen face.

I am always so acceptable of excusing such pathetic medical care today...and finding this the new "norm" , that leaves me as an after thought as I think and most wish....I would die when there is not a dollar sign left in my very eye of life and I feel this way perceived.

... however to no avail..., no wonder I am wide awake happy with the breath of life at this moment while my dreams seem to close in on my reality...

...which may be the dreams as my eyes have always and finally perceived... my chest hurts, my lymph nodes ache and I still puff away ignorantly.

I know what I need to do, question is.. can I do it?

...smoking may be enjoyable but death and slavery to a chemical...sux!

puff, gag, cough...and never shall I sing again.

What are the early symptoms of lung cancer? We know that the survival rate from lung cancer is better the earlier it is caught. The 60% to 80% 5-year survival rate with stage 1 lung cancer drops to a saddening 10% with stage 4 disease, yet nearly half of people have progressed to this advanced stage at the time of diagnosis. What are the early symptoms of lung cancer that you should be on the lookout for?
Keep in mind that understanding the early symptoms of lung cancer is important for non-smokers as well as smokers. At present, 50% of people who develop lung cancer are former smokers, and 15% have never smoked.

A Cough That Doesn’t Go Away

Many people dismiss or adapt to a chronic cough, attributing it to something else. Perhaps it is allergies, a “leftover” cough following a cold, or dry air during the winter months. But a cough that lasts more than a few weeks can be a sign of something else. A chronic cough as an early symptom of lung cancer is even easier to miss if you have a condition that predisposes you to coughing, such as asthmaCOPDallergies, or gastroesophageal refluxCoughing up blood(hemoptysis) is a common symptom of lung cancer, but can be fairly subtle and you may notice only a small amount of blood tinged phlegm when you cough. If you experience a persistent cough, check with your doctor, and ask for a second opinion if you don’t get a clear answer.

Shortness of Breath With Activity

Another common early symptom of lung cancer is shortness of breath that you only notice with activity. This can be overlooked and blamed on getting older, being out-of-shape, or perhaps due to those few extra pounds you've gained. If you notice that you are hesitant to take that hike, become winded with sexual activity, or blame the humidity for making it more difficult to breathe, make an appointment to talk to your doctor.

Pain or Aching in Your Shoulder, Back, Chest, or Arm

Lung cancers may press on nerves, resulting in pain in your shoulder, chest, back, or an arm -- even before they cause a cough or difficulty breathing. If you notice pain in one of these areas of the body that doesn’t seem to be related to an injury (or even if it is but persists), consult your physician. Up to 50% of people with lung cancer have some chest or shoulder pain at the time of diagnosis, especially pain that increases with coughing and breathing.

Repeated Infections Such as Bronchitis and Pneumonia

It’s not uncommon for someone to discover that they have lung cancer after being treated for repeated episodes of bronchitis or pneumonia. If a tumor is located near an airway, it can cause an obstruction that predisposes you to these infections. If you have had a few episodes of bronchitis or pneumonia, talk to your doctor. Repeated infections could be due to persistent smoking or a condition such as COPD, but they could also be an early symptom of lung cancer.

Any Abnormal Symptoms or a General Decline in Health

If you note any symptoms which are unusual for you, it is important to check with you doctor, especially if you have a history of smoking. Seemingly unrelated symptoms, such as knee pain, may be an early symptom of lung cancer. General symptoms, such as fatigue, decreased appetite, or even depression should prompt you to seek a physicians guidance, too.
With lung cancer now the leading cause of cancer deaths for both men and women in the United States, it is important to be aware of any early symptoms. That said, 25% of people have no symptoms at the time of diagnosis, and lung cancer is discovered incidentally when a chest x-ray or CT scan is done for an unrelated reason. CT screening for lung cancer is being evaluated, but it raises other issues that need to be considered. Hopefully, a test will be developed in the near future that will allow us to screen for lung cancer as we are now able to screen for some other cancers.

yeah...I think I am am so there...smoking tobacco sux! you get it?
