Diagnosis

Please, please ask for chest X-ray or other diagnostic tools if you are a senior with bone complaints. Lung cancer should be ruled out first before undergoing treatment with physical therapy, painkillers and/or anti-inflammatories. We live in a community with 3 people diagnosed with lung cancer around the same time. 3 months were wasted with useless treatment. My husband is one of them but the other 2 just died after months of misdiagnosis. All 3 have had a history of smoking so shouldn't a red flag gone up. X-rays of bones show very little and it's an MRI that you must have. Are doctors out there so simple-minded that they don't suspect lung cancer when it is so common?
