Lung Cancer

Signs of lung cancer include:

  • A persistent cough that doesn’t go away and gets worse over time
  • Coughing up blood
  • Shortness of breath
  • Constant chest pain
  • Bone pain
  • Losing weight without trying
  • Frequent headaches

But lung cancer doesn’t usually cause symptoms until it’s advanced. That’s because your lungs have few nerve endings, so tumors can grow there without causing pain.
