As soon as Frank Cranford's wife noticed he wasn't feeling well, she encouraged him to go see his doctor. This simple step may have saved his life. According to the American Cancer Society, there were more than 226,000 new cases of lung cancer diagnosed in 2012. Based on statistics, the only ones likely to survive this deadly disease are the ones diagnosed early. Luckily for the Cranfords, his diagnosis came in time and the doctors and staff at DeKalb Medical were able to team up with Frank to fight and beat his cancer.
New technology has made it even easier to diagnose lung cancer at an early, more treatable stage. If you have a history that puts you at high risk for lung cancer or are having any symptoms of lung cancer, a call to DeKalb Medical could save your life.
