Every year, over 150,000 people in the United States of America die of lung cancer, making lung cancer by far the leading cause of cancer death.[1] One reason why lung cancer is so deadly is that it often eludes detection until too late to save the patient. 80% of lung cancer patients are only diagnosed once their cancer has reached stage III or stage IV, by which point surgery is off the table.[2]
