Symptoms of Lung Cancer

Those who are susceptible to lung cancer should be provided early screenings. When the cancer is advanced it will show the following symptoms:
- A lingering cough
- Deep and hoarse cough
- A lack of breath
- Pains in the chest
- Loss of weight
- Pain in the bones
If a patient is experiencing more than one of these symptoms together, they should immediately be checked out. For the most part, lung cancer can be cured if it is detected and treated early on. Negligence’s that can lead to not detecting lung cancer are:
- Misreading results on an x-ray
- Not ordering required tests
- Not seeing something abnormal in x-ray results
