Lung Health And Cancer Awareness: Great American Smokeout November 16 2023 · American Lung Association · American Cancer Society · NJ Quitline
A nagging (chronic) cough may barely register in the course of our busy days, but it’s critically important to pay attention to even mild lung disease symptoms.
It’s not normal to experience shortness of breath that doesn’t go away after exercising, or that you have after little or no exertion. Labored or difficult breathing—the feeling that it is hard to breathe in out—is also a warning sign.
Mucus, also called sputum or phlegm, is produced by the airways as a defense against infections or irritants. If your mucus production has lasted a month or longer, this could indicate lung disease.
Noisy breathing or (wheezing) is a sign that something unusual is blocking your lungs’ airways or making them too narrow.
If you are coughing up blood, it may be coming from your lungs or upper respiratory tract. Wherever it’s coming from, it signals a health problem.
Unexplained chest pain that lasts for a month or more — especially if it gets worse when you breathe in or cough — also is a warning sign.
