I have recentely been diagnosed with lung cancer 1/10/13 that has metatasized into my brain. I truely believe the full body scanners in the air ports caught this up to two years ago but was unbenownst due to just not knowing the ability of this technology. When traveling for my work I passed through two seperate terminals: I believe one at Denver International and another at Atlanta GA. Both times I was scanned I was asked to step aside due to seeing a blip in my chest cavity area. The airport security pulled me aside to give me a pat down. When I asked, they thought it just a fluke. Twice this has happend and when I learned of my condition last couple of weeks and then heard the controversey over having the full body scanners removed from the airports, I feel obligated to put in my 2 cents. If these devises actually sensed that there was this growth of cancer in my lung, which is now over 8cm, before being caught by Dr visit and chest xray.
What I want people to be aware of is that if these machines have the ability to catch things like this and might catch it in the early stages of growth to give them an inclination that they should have it investigated and just not passed of as a fluke of the system, maybe it can not only save some lives, but but give warning soon enough to catch and totally heal any cancer that may be developing within the human body. If this could save one life, wouldn't it be worth leaving them in place. I would much rather personally have a monster inside me be identified early than be afraid someone might see my alien looking body wearing funky panties. Just saying.
