A 51 year old man was diagnosed with lung cancer after physiotherapy to treat parasthesia in his left arm believed to be due to nerve entrapment failed to resolve and lead to further investigation. The tumor in his lung had grown to such a size that it was pressing on the nerve. After he was diagnosed, the man had cancer treatment for both lungs and neurosurgery to remove metastases in his brain. He was initially given 3 months to live, but has since returned to work and is now promoting early detection of lung cancers to increase people’s survival.
