Lung Cancer Part 1: Knowing the Signs
Published: 11/24/2012

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.
