Lung Cancer May Run in Families
 
"Individuals with a mother, sister or other "first-degree" relative with lung cancer are at increased risk of developing the disease, regardless of whether they smoke. Researchers say the finding supports the role of genetics and perhaps a shared environment in the development of lung cancer."

I think that anyone who's had a lot of lung problems, especially with allergies, asthma and COPD always worries about the possibility of lung cancer.  I know I have - My Dad had lung cancer.  So that is why I included the above article under this section.

Let me know how you feel!?

Hugs, Teri
