What are the common symptoms of lung cancer? 

Signs and symptoms of lung cancer do not typically appear during the earliest stages of the disease. Once the condition advances, signs and symptoms of lung cancer may include:
 
  • A new cough that gets worse or doesn't go away
  • Changes in a chronic cough or "smoker's cough"
  • Hemoptysis - coughing up blood, even a small amount
  • Shortness of breath due too blocked airways
  • Angina or severe chest pains
  • Wheezing 
  • Hoarseness
  • Pain in the bones and joints
  • Headache or migraines 
  • Feeling fatigued, very tired all the time, and lethargic
  • Losing weight with without trying or muscle atrophy with no known cause.
