Don't believe: .Everything you read in websites. That's my first advise. Like with any cancer, the earlier you find a lung cancer, the better the chances of a potential cure. Now don't get me wrong, lung cancer stage by stage has a worse prognosis compared to others, let's say breast cancer, and this is complicated by the fact it is seldom found early, so it's best to prevent it. That said, some are cured.
