When George Perrone felt a sudden, sharp pain in his abdomen, he came to Massachusetts General Hospital. Upon consultation, he was informed that he not only need to undergo treatment for an inguinal hernia, but also for stage 1 lung cancer.
Lung cancer is cancer that usually starts in the lining of the bronchi (the main airways of the lungs), but can also begin in other areas of the respiratory system, including the trachea, bronchioles, or alveoli.
