10 Signs and Symptoms of Lung Cancer
Published: 11/11/2013

Yesterday’s Daily Tip discussed four ways to minimize your risk of lung cancer. Today we look at the signs and symptoms. Lung cancer typically doesn’t cause signs and symptoms in its earliest stages, with noticeable changes occurring most often when the disease is advanced. These may include:

  1. A new cough that doesn’t go away
  2. Changes in a chronic cough
  3. Coughing up blood, even a small amount
  4. Shortness of breath
  5. Chest pain
  6. Wheezing
  7. Hoarseness
  8. Losing weight without trying
  9. Bone pain
  10. Headache (persistent)

If you experience any of the symptoms above in a way that is out of the ordinary for you contact your doctor – the earlier you catch the disease, the quicker you can begin treatment.
