Lung Cancer Symptoms

Lung cancer often has no noticeable symptoms in its early stages. Approximately 40 percent of people diagnosed with lung cancer have reached advanced stages in which the disease has spread or metastasized. Symptoms often vary depending on the type of lung cancer, location and size of the tumor. Some symptoms may take years to develop or appear similar to other illnesses.

Lung cancer symptoms may include:

  • Coughing that is persistent, gets worse or will not subside; approximately 50 percent of people with lung cancer experience coughing as a primary symptom
  • Coughing up blood
  • Chest pain that is new or unexplained
  • Feeling exhausted or extremely tired all of the time
  • Hoarseness of voice
  • Pneumonia or recurrent pneumonia
  • Shortness of breath
  • Swollen glands or lymph nodes in the chest area near the lungs
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Wheezing
