    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    A year and a half of telling doctor something is wrong. Going every 2mths, caugh,chest pains,bronchial area tight and pain feeling like my chest tearing when sleeping and turning left to right side. Constantly waking me due to severe pain. Trouble breathing, dizzy, and always needing to rest. Why were these symptoms overlooked. There had to be special test to check for cancer early on. Had x-ray in November 2011 nothing showed up. January 19, 2012 rushed to hospital x-ray showed something in upper left lung which was pressing on larynex and clavical. Why were my concerns and pain overlooked?????
