My dad has been seeing him for sometime now for COPD. One night he had to go to the ER for coughing up blood. CT reveled spot on both right and left lung and Er doc said he was 99% sure it was cancer and consulted oncology and his pulmonologist. Oncologist came in and said he was 99% sure it was cancer but we needed a biopsy. Kemmberly came in and said “ I have been watching the spot on the left lung and I believe it is just scar tissue.” Guess what it is stage 4 lung cancer cause he sat on it.
