Lung cancer… Can it be detected by coughing?
As with all types of cancer, early diagnosis is vital to having the best chance of successful treatment and survival.Unfortunately, there are not many warning symptoms in the early stages of lung cancer, as it is easy to miss the warning signs until it develops and begins to spread to other parts of the body, at which point the cancer becomes more aggressive and difficult to treat.

One of the most common symptoms of lung cancer is a persistent cough. However, a cough can be a symptom of many other conditions, so it will be important to be able to distinguish a normal cough from a cough that may be a symptom of lung cancer.The NHS says that if the cough does not go away after two or three weeks, a person should see a doctor.

The agency warns that coughing for a period of time, which gets worse, may be a cause for concern, as well as coughing up blood.

The type of cough can vary depending on the patient, but in some cases, a lung cancer cough can be accompanied by wheezing (wheezing breathing) or a rattle and hoarseness.The severity of the cough cannot be judged by the sound it makes, so if it lasts for a long time, you should make an appointment with your doctor.

What are the other symptoms of lung cancer?

According to the NHS Medical Center, the main symptoms of lung cancer are:

Long-term cough that gets worse

Chest infections that keep coming back

– coughing up blood

Aching or pain when breathing or coughing

Constant shortness of breath

Constant tiredness or lack of energy

Loss of appetite or unexplained weight loss

Less common symptoms of lung cancer include:

Difficulty swallowing (dysphagia) or pain when swallowing

Some lifestyle factors can cause a higher risk of lung cancer, the most important of which is smoking, which causes about 70% of lung cancer cases.It is noteworthy that smoking 25 cigarettes a day increases the risk of lung cancer 25 times.

Although most cases of lung cancer are related to smoking, it is a disease that can affect non-smokers.

Lung cancer is rare in those under the age of 40, while four out of 10 cases are diagnosed in people over the age of 75.
