Over 7 million die from cancer each year. Lung Cancer is one of the most common, and deadliest, forms of cancer that affect both men and women. This makes lung cancer a double blow. The key to treating any type of cancer is, of course, early detection. Here are a few signs to look out for if you think that you may have lung cancer:
1. Pain in the chest area
You will experience pain in your chest, near your ribcage, if you have lung cancer. This pain can occur suddenly and get worse over time. It cannot be explained by an accident or some type of trauma. The pain will likely get worse when you take deep breaths, cough, or laugh. Contact your doctor immediately if you feel unexplained pain in this area.
