Symptoms of lung cancer

Written by Mystic on Tuesday, August 05, 2008 PRIt is important to note that the signs and symptoms of lung cancer usually occur when the disease is at an advanced stage. They are as follows:

* A persistent cough or a change in a chronic cough
* Shortness of breath
* Blood stained sputum (phlegm)
* Chest pain, often aggravated by deep breathing
* Bouts of pneumonia or bronchitis.

Symptoms of more advanced lung cancer may include:

* Fatigue
* Weight loss and loss of appetite
* Extreme shortness of breath
* Hoarseness
* Difficulty with swallowing
* Other symptoms that seem entirely unrelated to the lungs due to the spread of lung cancer, such as bone pain.
