Lung cancer is a deadly disease. Also, its signs are not known until the disease reaches the severe stage. So let’s know about the early symptoms of this dangerous disease.
When your cough persists for more than a week, it is better to consult a doctor. Also, if the cough gets worse and blood comes along with it, take this situation seriously and see a doctor immediately.
Shortness of breath
If you have any breathing problems or feel short of breath, see a doctor and get tested. Breathing problems occur when the airway narrows or fluid from a tumor in the lungs accumulates in the chest, making it difficult for you to breathe.
Pain in the chest, shoulders, back, and other parts of the body can also be a sign of cancer. When cancer starts spreading to your bones, it starts causing pain in many parts.
sudden weight loss
If you are losing weight suddenly, it can also be a sign of many types of cancer, including lung cancer. When you are suffering from lung cancer, you tend to lose weight. This happens because cancer cells start using up all the energy in your body.
