A diagnosis of lung cancer can make you feel like your world has been turned upside down. It can impact all aspects of day-to-day life. Fatigue, pain, and shortness of breath are just some of the symptoms that may wreak havoc on the life of a person living with lung cancer. While these symptoms typically translate to an unfavorable impact on one’s quality of life, there are things that help! Support from friends, family, and healthcare professionals truly matters! In addition, a positive attitude can really go a long way.
We asked questions about symptoms, treatment, healthcare experience, and quality of life in our Lung Cancer In America survey, which a total of 814 people with lung cancer completed. Check out what the community had to say!
The Lung Cancer In America 2017 survey was conducted online from late 2016 through January 2017 to gather insights about life with lung cancer.
