Lung Cancer Symptoms
Lung cancer does not cause any uncommon symptoms until it has started to spread throughout the body. If you notice any of the following symptoms, it is important to consult your physician as soon as possible.
If you go to your physician when you start to notice symptoms, your cancer could be diagnosed at an early stage when treatment is more likely to be effective. The most common symptoms of lung cancer are:
- A cough that won't go away or worsens.
- Chest pain that is often worse with deep breathing, coughing or laughing.
- Chronic fatigue.
- Coughing up blood, mucus or phlegm.
- Shortness of breath.
- Weight loss without dieting.
