Dr. Costanzo Di Perna, a thoracic surgeon at Mercy San Juan Medical Center, seeks to dispel the notion that lung cancer means certain death.

The prevailing attitude among victims of the disease and some doctors, he said, is “nihilistic.”

“They think everybody dies. It’s not true. We have to prove that it’s an untruth, when lung cancer is caught early and taken out early,” he said.
