1. Persistent Hoarseness or Cough
A chronic cough that is untreatable can be an indication of lung cancer. Other symptoms go hand in hand with chronic cough if you’re developing lung cancer. Below are other symptoms:
- Severe chest, shoulder, or back pain that occurs during deep breathing, laughing, and coughing
- Shortness of breath
- Coughing rust-colored phlegm or blood
If you detect these symptoms, you should consult your medical practitioner. The physician will use several approaches to treat lung cancer, such as targeted therapy, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and surgery. These treatments will eliminate the cancer cells, thus preventing further spread to other body parts.
