What are the symptoms of lung cancer?
The most common symptoms of lung cancer are:
- coughing up blood
- a new or changed cough that doesn’t go away
- chest pain and/or shoulder pain or discomfort – the pain may be worse with coughing or deep breathing
- trouble breathing or shortness of breath
- hoarse voice
- weight loss
- loss of appetite
- chest infection that doesn’t go away
- tiredness or weakness
Many conditions can cause these symptoms, not just lung cancer.
Anyone can get lung cancer, even if they have never smoked. If you have any of these symptoms and they are persistent, talk to your doctor.
