A 67-year-old female asked:

Outer part of lung: This just describes the location. Location is associated with symptoms. Tumors adjacent to the pleura, which has many nerve endings, causes pain with breathing whereas deeper tumors are less likely to. Metastases to the lung can be treated with chemotherapy, targeted therapy depending on pathology, or radiation therapy if in a safe-to-treat location.

Not always different: The main difference is that headache due to a tumor is not intermittent and gets worse and worse. Also regular headaches are usually not associated with neurological signs and symptoms (except for severe migraines and aneurysms).

Iron Deficiency: You lack iron and are likely anemic or soon to be. The reason for this depends on your age, sex, symptoms, examination and results of other lab tests. Follow up with your doctor. At your age, and as a woman, iron deficiency is usually due to blood loss related to menstrual periods, and oral iron supplements are usually all that is necessary if other causes are ruled out.

Has your claim been proven or disproven in a biochemical test or study? If no test has been made so far, what is a theoretical chance for such case?
