Sometimes some signs of cancer are not taken into consideration by the affected people. The experts listed the symptoms of lung cancer that need attention, from coughing to weight loss.
In most cases, lung cancer does not manifest in the early stages, according to the Medicforum portal. However, experts advise to pay special attention to symptoms that may indicate the development of a tumor.
Difficulty breathing and coughing are one of the first reasons to consult your 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 while breathing, night sweats, and sudden weight loss.
Sometimes atypical symptoms may indicate lung cancer: lower body bone pain, osteoporosis, fingertip and nail thickening, and fat deposits around the central part of the body.
Experts point out that the signs listed do not necessarily indicate the development of tumors in the body, but show the need for medical examination.
