A man who was treated for lung cancer for five years did not receive a correct diagnosis

A man who was treated for five years for lung cancer did not receive a correct diagnosis


Five years ago, Paul Bell received a dreaded diagnosis: metastatic lung cancer. At least two different doctors thought. He was treated all the time, but felt worse than before. He opted for another opinion at St. Luke's Center for Precision Oncology, where all 20,000 cancer genes are being tested with genomic sequencing. Most hospitals test only 600. Then he found out that he had a different type of cancer than his other doctors believed. Watch the video to learn more about Paul's story.
