Lung Cancer 
Signs And Symptoms

 

Lung cancer signs and symptoms are not apparent in the early stages of the disease according to The National Institutes of Health (NIH), so be aware of the following:

  • A cough that doesn’t go away and gets worse over time.
  • Constant chest pain.
  • Bone pain.
  • Headache.
  • Coughing up blood.
  • Shortness of breath, wheezing or hoarseness.
  • Repeated problems with pneumonia or bronchitis.
  • Swelling of the neck and face.
  • Loss of appetite or weight loss.
  • Fatigue.

Some of these symptoms mimic other diseases. If you’re not feeling better in 1 to 2 weeks, call your health professional for a doc-chec. Don’t wait. When lung cancer is caught early, treatment is more successful.
