    Radiation (Internal radiation): I had radiation on my lungs, I went for 7 weeks straight (excluding weekends. I was lucky, never got burns. It just made me tired and felt a little tightness of the lungs.

    Oh No (The doctor game me the prescription for anitdepressants and suggested I get a lung exray only because I was a smoker): I immediately got my pills. Put the paper away for the x-ray. About 2 months went by when I saw the paper for the x-ray and said what the XXX, it is free and so I went and had the lung x-ray. She called me and said she needed to see me. I went in and she said I had Lung cancer and sent me to another Dr.
