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:
- shortness of breath
- chest pain
- loss of appetite
- coughing up phlegm, mucus, or blood
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.
