Lung Cancer Statistics
Atlanta medical malpractice attorney Jeff Dover and Mark Weissinger, M.D., a full-time medical consultant with the Dover Law Firm, discuss the statistics and give an overview of lung cancer. It is estimated that nearly 220,000 men and women were diagnosed with lung and bronchus cancers in 2009. Based on recent statistics, nearly 7 percent of men and women born today will be diagnosed with lung cancer at some time during their lives. Since 1991, Attorney Dover has been helping victims of medical malpractice, including men and women who did not receive a timely diagnosis of their lung cancer or who received bad medical care once they were diagnosed.
