Know the Symptoms

Don’t Let Lung Cancer Go Undiagnosed

Lung cancer can go undiagnosed for a long time because many of its symptoms can be mistaken for other health issues like pneumonia, allergies or even a common cold. And many people with lung cancer don’t even have symptoms until the disease is in its later stages.

Symptoms can include:

  • A cough that doesn’t go away or gets worse over time
  • Hoarseness
  • Constant chest pain
  • Shortness of breath or wheezing
  • Frequent lung infections
  • Coughing up blood

Other less-obvious symptoms may include:

  • Weight loss
  • Loss of appetite
  • Headaches
  • Bone pain or fractures
  • Blood clots

If you have been experiencing symptoms like these for a long time, have been exposed to environmental factors like radon or air pollution, or live a high-risk lifestyle by smoking, talk to your doctor about being screened for lung cancer.
