Lung Cancer Symptoms - Lung cancer symptoms often take years to develop. Some common symptoms of lung cancer include the following: a cough that doesn't go away, pain in the chest area, unusual shortness of breath, hoarseness, wheezing, coughing up blood, blood in phlegm or mucus, and a change in color or volume of sputum (mucus coughed up from the lungs). Additional symptoms may include fatigue, loss of appetite, unexplained weight loss, neck or facial swelling, headaches, bone/joint pain, and other neurological symptoms. Because these symptoms share characteristics similar to other, non-cancerous conditions (such as bronchitis), a medical professional should be consulted for an accurate diagnosis.
