Finding lung cancer sooner rather than later can obviously make a big difference in the outcome, and using a CT scan to find the cancer may be the best option.  On the next Mayo Clinic Radio, Saturday, November 15 at 9 a.m. CT, our guest is pulmonologist David Midthun, M.D.  We'll find out why lung cancer is so deadly and talk about the importance of diagnosing it early.  We'll also be joined by a patient who had her lung cancer diagnosed with a CT scan.  November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month. Hope you'll join us.

Myth or Fact: One in 10 people newly diagnosed with lung cancer have never smoked.
