      Not to make light of this disease, but I sure like #1. I am copying and pasting what the article says,

      " Lung cancer is the most common type of lung cancer throughout the world."

      Someone needs to proofread better :) :)

      LiveWithCancer - That was funny. Dumbo here didn't catch that! GregP_WN - Thanks for posting, it was very interesting. I now have 3 areas in my lungs (mets from kidney), one lower lobe of left and two lower lobe of right. Still treating with Sutent. It has had a good effect on the first two. We are watching for a good outcome on the new one, hopefully.
