  • I won't be able to attend. I'd like to get the word out about back pain being a lung cancer symptom! That is the only symptom my husband had & he was totally misdiagnosed & died in 3 months.

    It is the most devastating loss. Please get the word out to Dr's & practioners. The 2 chest x rays that were taken were both negative. They never did a stronger test until I took him to the ER for a CAT scan where he was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer with metastasis to the bone.

  • Hello Glynn,

    I am very sorry to hear that your husband has died and that he was initially misdiagnosed which would have delayed the start of any treatment. It is often the case that lung cancer is not diagnosed until the later stages and as you have said a symptom of lung cancer can indeed be back or shoulder pain. November is lung cancer awareness month this takes place every year an aim of the campaign is to share the stories of lung cancer survivors, caregivers and families of those who have been diagnosed with lung cancer, in the hope to raise awareness of symptoms and encourage people to know the risk factors and to attended their Gp for further investigations.

    Kind regards Roy Castle helpline
