Florida teacher says a CT scan caught his cancer and saved his life
February 1, 2016
ABC Action News reported from TAMPA - “I started smoking when I was 12.”
David Devine is a math teacher at Pierce Middle School who continued suffering symptoms even after he quit smoking. “
“CT scans are very sensitive. They pick up very small nodules that can be as small as a grain of rice. And in fact, the majority of nodules are actually benign. Only the suspicious nodules we pick up on these CT scans require further work up. Or biopsies," Fontaine said.
David's suspicious nodule ended up being lung cancer-- stage three. But after chemo and radiation, followed by an experimental drug, David's cancer is now gone.
He wonders what his chances would have been had he not gotten that screening.
“Lung cancer kills more men and women in this country than breast cancer, prostate cancer and cervical cancer combined.”
David says he’s trying to convince all his smoker friends go get it.
