The Day That Changed My Life - Ed's Journey with Lung Cancer

In the earliest stages of lung cancer, it is often difficult to diagnose as there are no early signs or symptoms. Lung cancer is often found during a chest X-ray. However, by the time the symptoms appear, it is usually in an advance stage. Some of the symptoms that present itself may be a new cough that doesn't go away, changes in a chronic cough or "smoker's cough", chest pain, coughing up blood-even a small amount, bone pain, headache, hoarseness, losing weight without changing diet or exercising, shortness of breath and wheezing.

Learning that you have lung cancer can be similar to receiving a severe blow to the chest, one that literally knocks the wind out of you. Ed shares his journey with lung cancer and how it has changed his life.

While each journey is unique, we all share a common theme - cancer changes our lives forever.
