Named the symptoms of lung cancer, which may appear 6 months before the diagnosis

(ORDO NEWS) — Some time ago, Cancer Research UK, together with the National Cancer Institute, conducted another study, which made it possible to establish 11 main signs that indicate the development of lung cancer. More than half of these symptoms begin more than half a year before the terrible diagnosis is made.

Lung cancer is considered one of the most common types of cancer. In addition, experts record a very low percentage of patient survival.

That is why it is very important to know what signs may indicate a problem. Due to this, it will be possible to make an earlier diagnosis, which significantly increases the chances that the treatment will be more successful.

Within 10 years, only 10% of patients diagnosed with lung cancer survive. Statistics can scare many, but it is possible to prevent this diagnosis in almost 80% of cases.

The sooner the presence of oncology is established, the greater the chance that a person will be able to live over 10 years. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to some of the symptoms.

  • Expectoration of blood
  • Cough
  • Pain in the bones, back and chest
  • Wheezing and wheezing in the chest
  • Lymphadenopathy
  • Weight loss
  • Dyspnea
  • Fatigue

Experts have found that most of these symptoms can indicate the development of lung cancer about six months before the presence of a problem becomes apparent and an accurate diagnosis can be made.

Experts stressed that some symptoms may appear even a year before a person hears the news of oncology from a doctor.
