(ORDO NEWS) — Lung cancer is an insidious disease that does not even manifest itself at an early stage. After a thorough study of cancer patients, specialists nevertheless managed to find out some symptoms that may indicate a problem.
Some patients at an early stage of cancer are faced with a number of troubles, which become a reason to consult a doctor. If you do not waste time, then, perhaps, the progression of the disease can be stopped.
According to scientists, cancer directly affects a person’s laughter, or rather, the physical ability to laugh. An alarm bell is a situation if, while laughing, the chest begins to ache sharply. The pain is usually sharp and stabbing.
Chest pain can appear not only from laughter, noted the American Cancer Society. So, blockage of the lungs leads to pain even when breathing, often during coughing. Due to the development of a tumor, fluid accumulates in the lungs, and lymph nodes enlarge.
The following symptoms can be distinguished, which most often concern citizens with cancer:
- worsening cough;
- bleeding during coughing;
- hoarse voice;
- loss of appetite;
- sudden weight loss;
- feeling of fatigue (all patients note that before diagnosing the disease, they only wanted to sleep, and this
- could go on for days);
- infectious diseases (bronchitis, pneumonia, which are not treated and recur with a certain regularity).
Metastases that have spread throughout the body can cause bone pain, disorders of the nervous system, yellowing of the skin, and swollen lymph nodes. Some types of lung cancer cause joint swelling and pain, swollen fingers and nails, and discomfort in the shoulder and down the arm.
It is important to note that the listed signs may indicate completely other diseases, so you should not wind yourself up. It is best to get tested.
