Voices of Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is the biggest cancer killer in the country, killing more than 160,000 people a year. Yet the disease remains low on the list of cancer funding priorities. In 2006, the National Cancer Institute spent $1,518 for each new case of lung cancer and $1,630 for each lung cancer death. By comparison, the agency spent $13,452 per death on breast cancer, which takes 41,000 lives annually.

Patients with lung cancer are well aware of the disparity in spending and sympathy, an issue addressed in the latest Patient Voices series by my colleague Karen Barrow.

“Because lung cancer is associated with smoking, there’s a stigma that makes it a much less sympathetic disease,” said Dr. Lisa Wood of Guilford, Conn., who was diagnosed last year with late-stage lung cancer.

Part of the problem is that lung cancer is often so deadly, patients don’t have the opportunity to become activists for their disease, said Jerrold Dash, 35, a nonsmoker who received a double lung transplant after developing the illness.

“A lot of lung cancer survivors don’t make it past five years, so there aren’t many voices to speak up like the other cancers,” Mr. Dash said. “I find myself always having to answer the questions: Did you smoke? How long did you smoke? Did you work in a coal mine? Every answer I give them is no.”

    肺癌是國內最大的癌症殺手,一年內殺死的病患多於160,000人.但是肺癌卻仍在癌症基金的優先順序名單中敬陪末座.在2006年國家癌症協會在每一個新診斷的肺癌個案身上花了美金$1,518元,而因肺癌死亡的病患則花費了美金$1630元.與乳癌相比較癌症協會就花了美金$13,452在每個乳癌死亡的病人身上,而每年因乳癌死亡的人數為41.000人.

    Patients with lung cancer are well aware of the disparity in spending and sympathy, an issue addressed in the latest Patient Voices series by my colleague Karen Barrow.

    「大部分的肺癌病患都知道這個金錢上甚至於同情心上的不平等待遇」,我的一個同儕Karen Barrow在最近一期的"病患的心聲"中說出這個問題.

    "Because lung cancer is associated with smoking, there’s a stigma that makes it a much less sympathetic disease," said Dr. Lisa Wood of Guilford, Conn., who was diagnosed last year with late-stage lung cancer.

    Dr. Lisa Wood 說 " 因為大家認為得肺癌和吸菸有關這個汙名的存在使得多數病患得不到同情" 她在去年被診斷出肺癌末期.

    Part of the problem is that lung cancer is often so deadly, patients don’t have the opportunity to become activists for their disease, said Jerrold Dash, 35, a nonsmoker who received a double lung transplant after developing the illness.

    其中還有一部分原因為肺癌的疾病死亡率相當高病患幾乎沒有機會為自己的疾病站出來,35歲的 Jerrold Dash說.他是一個非吸菸者並在罹患此疾病後接受了雙側肺移植手術.

    "A lot of lung cancer survivors don’t make it past five years, so there aren’t many voices to speak up like the other cancers," Mr. Dash said. “I find myself always having to answer the questions: Did you smoke? How long did you smoke? Did you work in a coal mine? Every answer I give them is no.”

    Mr. Dash說 「許多肺癌存活的患者多活不過五年所以他們不像其他癌症患者可以替自己的疾病站出來說出自己的心聲」「而我總是在回答這樣的問題:你是否有抽菸?你抽菸抽多久了?你是不是在礦場工作?但我的鎂一個答案都是"不" 」
