What Are The Symptoms Of Lung Cancer?

Postby Seymour » Wed Apr 19, 2017 8:53 pm

Lung cancer typically doesn't cause signs and symptoms in its earliest stages. Signs and symptoms of lung cancer typically occur only when the disease is advanced. Signs and symptoms of lung cancer may include:

* A new cough that doesn't go away

* Changes in a chronic cough or "smoker's cough"

* Coughing up blood, even a small amount

* Shortness of breath

* Chest pain

* Wheezing

* Hoarseness

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, among both men and women. It claims more lives each year than colon, prostate, lymph and breast cancers combined.

Yet most lung cancer deaths could be prevented. That's because smoking accounts for nearly 90 percent of lung cancer cases. Your risk of lung cancer increases with the length of time and number of cigarettes you smoke. If you quit smoking, even after smoking for many years, you can significantly reduce your chances of developing lung cancer. Protecting yourself from other risk factors for lung cancer, such as exposure to asbestos, radon and secondhand smoke, also decreases your risk. -

What Are The Symptoms Of Lung Cancer?

Often, sadly enough, there are no early symptoms til lung cancer is in its later stages. I had a pain under my ribs, thought it was a bronchial attack.. had xrays, suspicious masses found.. ended up with multiple scans, biopsy and diagnosed with stage iv lung cancer.. never saw that coming!! So its important to get unknown pain checked out, listen to your body. Even at stage iv, I still don't have the symptoms listed yet was given only a few months to live at my diagnosis.. weird.. but it happens.. be careful and be safe.
