Sometimes no signs of cancer are taken into account by those affected. Specialists listed the symptoms of lung cancer to pay attention, from cough to weight loss.
In most cases, lung cancer is not manifested in the initial stages, according to the portal Medicforum. Nevertheless, experts recommend paying special attention to the symptoms that may indicate the development of a tumor.
Difficulty breathing and coughing is one of the first reasons for consulting the doctor. In many cases, patients tend to perceive these signs as a simple flu.
Other symptoms include persistent hoarseness, swelling of the neck and face, shortness of breath, chest pain during breathing, night sweats and sudden weight loss.
Atypical symptoms can sometimes indicate lung cancer: bone pain in the lower body, osteoporosis, thickening of the fingertips and nails, and fat deposits around the central part of the body.
The experts point out that the signs listed do not necessarily indicate the development of tumors in the body, but indicate the need for a medical examination.
