5 Early Warning Signs That You Might Have Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death in the U.S. Smoker or non-smoker, everyone is at risk and that’s why you should pay attention to the signs your body is showing you.

Here are the 5 early warning signs that lung cancer is growing in your body:

1. Rough voice

If you notice your voice becoming deeper and rougher, and if these changes last more than 2 weeks, check it with your doctor. Lung cancer can press on the nerve that controls the larynx.

2. Constant coughing

A common cough can last up to 2 weeks. If you’re still coughing for more than 1 month, check it with your doctor.

3. Unexplained weight loss

 

A sudden weight loss might be a sign of a serious problem and indicate lung cancer.

4. Abnormal breathing

Experiencing difficulties when breathing or having shortness of breath can indicate a serious problem. People with allergies suffer from being out of breath, but if you don’t have any allergies or a cold, visit a doctor.

5. Back Pain

Deep pain in the joints and bones that worsens when you sleep, can be an indicator of lung cancer. Check it out with your doctor.
