Lung Cancer Signs & Symptoms

You may not notice any symptoms of lung cancer ― many people don’t. Often the first sign of the disease is an abnormal spot that appears on a chest x-ray or a CT scan for another medical condition.

It’s possible you may experience one or more of the following symptoms:

  • coughing
  • shortness of breath
  • chest pain
  • loss of appetite
  • coughing up phlegm, mucus, or blood
  • fatigue

Many other conditions can cause these issues. If you have symptoms like these, talk with your doctor to help you figure out what’s causing them.
