Study claims one in five tumors can turn out to be harmless

December 10, 2013

CHICAGO (AP) — Harmless lung cancer? A provocative study found that nearly 1 in 5 lung tumors detected on CT scans are probably so slow-growing that they would never cause problems....

Summing RockERegurgitator’s silly summation, then:

Mammograms don’t work, no matter what your professional physician says.

Prostate exams don’t work, no matter what your professional physician says.

Lung cancer, smung cancer, whatever that’s supposed to mean.

Re Aids and Hep C: since I don’t do IV drugs or practice RockESex, yawn.

And how many people do you know who have died of malaria or TB lately? Mission Accomplished.

Now that's all cleared up, you can get back to getting my money's worth for that free Obamacare by getting back to eating pork rinds from the Barkalounger while watching Miley ride the Wrecking Ball, WrockE. LOL

Summing thrn:

Get your mammography radiation doses as often as possible even though screening has a minimal effect on the rate of death from breast cancer.

Buy your anti-Obama prostate exams today and often...be one of the lucky 40% of men treated because you could end up one of the 8% who will get prostate cancer significant enough to diagnos or even one of the 3% who might die from it.

Lung cancer, smung cancer....this planet's pristine atmosphere can purify your lungs of all carcinogens you inhale...try yoga outdoors!

Aids, Hepatitis C, Malaria, Tuberculosis?...diseases of lesser men than me...let 'em just die!!

..but when I clog my circulatory system from diet and inactivity?....I want my MTV!!!

All of you liberals Howling, THIS is Obamacare Propaganda in action.

Notice the Government announcements under Nobama:

Women don't need Mammography as often

Men don't need prostate exams, it grows too slow.

Now Lung cancer is not really a big problem until you are coughing up blood.

ALL BS to justify NO PAYMENT from Uncle Sammy.

I got one for YOU LIBBIES: AIDS!

It ***** up so much R&D money from Government grants, why don't we just FOGEGETABOUIT??

It is a GAY MAN and DRUG ABUSER disease solely. So if only affects <5%, Obama said losing insurance wasn't a big deal for only "5% of the population.

So how about we just stop AIDS research and let the handful of immoral people DIE???

Nothing kills more people than going to the doctor and starting a regimen of pills. Stay far far away from the doctor's office...and by no means take all these pills that actually make you sick and propeturate your need for other pills. It's a sick cycle that so many trustingly fall into.

To achieve that “whopping savings” Obamacare’s Independent Payment Advisory Board (aka, Death Panel) will certainly choose the less effective old-fashioned x-ray. That’s if you rate any diagnostic treatment at all; Doctor Obama will advise most of you, “Maybe you're better off to ... take a pill, take a painkiller.”

"Half..got three annual low-dose CT scans...1,089 lung cancers were diagnosed

"half got three annual conventional chest X-rays..969 (lung cancers were diagnosed)

A whopping savings on tumor diagnosis!

Only in the Enquir ..er..Intelligencer TOP headlines can we LEARN:

"Lung Cancer, Don't Fear The Reaper, Inhale Deeper"
