No matter, you are smoker or non-smoker, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the U.S., and knowing the early signs of this illness may eliminate an important risk.
If you notice any of these 5 common early signs of lung cancer, you should consult your doctor immediately.
1. Constant coughing
Common cold coughing lasts for about 1-2 weeks, but if you experience constant coughing for about 1 month, you should definitely visit your doctor for a checkup.
2. Rough voice
If you notice any changes in your voice, such as roughness or deepening, and if these changes last longer than 2 weeks, let your doctor know about these symptoms. Lung cancer may start pressing on the nerve that controls the larynx.
