Learning a New Lung Cancer Vocabulary
If you’ve never heard of a thoracic oncologist, biomarker testing, or don’t know what information you’re looking for in a second opinion, you aren’t alone! A lung cancer diagnosis can send you reeling into a confusing world where you feel like you don’t speak the language. You might feel like you need a whole new lung cancer vocabulary. In this 3-episode series called the 1st Seven Days, the Hope With Answers: Living With Lung Cancer podcast team helps you manage those initial days of a lung cancer diagnosis with a roadmap that helps you find the right doctor, get the right testing, and start to create the right treatment plan. In part 2 of this series, you’ll get medical advice from lung cancer expert Dr. David Carbone of The Ohio State University about biomarker testing and how to get a second opinion. Also, get a crash course – and increase your lung cancer vocabulary skills – in the lingo that you’ll need to manage your lung cancer diagnosis from people currently living with lung cancer.
