Learn the symptoms
Lung cancer claims more lives each year than colon, prostate, ovarian and breast cancers combined. It’s important to know the signs and symptoms. However, early signs of lung cancer are not always detectable. Symptoms typically occur when the cancer is advanced and may include:
- A new cough that doesn't go away
- Changes in a chronic cough or "smoker's cough"
- Coughing up blood, even a small amount
- Shortness of breath
- Chest pain
- Hoarseness in your voice
- Losing weight without trying
- Bone pain
