Lung cancer often has no symptoms because there are few specialized nerves (pain receptors) in the lungs. Lung cancer symptoms vary depending on the type of lung cancer and location and size of the tumor. Some lung cancer symptoms are similar to those of other common illnesses.
Lung cancer symptoms may include the following:

  • Coughing (most common, 50% of cases)
  • Blood in sputum (hemoptysis)
  • Shortness of breath (dyspnea)
  • Wheezing
  • Pain in the chest
  • Fatigue
  • Pneumonia
  • Hoarseness
  • Difficulty or pain in swallowing (dysphagia)
  • A high-pitched sound usually heard while taking a breath (stridor)

Smoking causes 80-85% of lung cancer in the U.S. By quitting smoking, you gain:

  • Healthier lungs
  • Reduced risk of cancer
  • Longer lifespan
  • More energy
  • Whiter, healthier teeth and fresh breath
  • Better immunity to fight off colds and flu
  • Freedom from guilt or pressure (finally!)
  • Fresh air around your home, workplace and vehicle
  • Clearer skin
  • Improved mood
  • Lower stress levels
