  • Symptoms of Lung Cancer

  • Although lung cancer may cause no symptoms in some people, symptoms of lung cancer may include:

    • a cough that becomes worse or does not go away
    • coughing up blood
    • wheezing or shortness of breath
    • hoarseness
    • frequent lung infections, such as pneumonia
    • unusual fatigue
    • unintentional weight loss

    You should see your doctor about any symptom that does not go away. Often, however, these symptoms are not due to cancer.
