Lung cancer interferes with this vital process of inhaling and exhaling, which can make breathing very difficult.
Lung Cancer is caused by lung cells growing out of control. As the number of cells grow, they form into a tumor. There are many types of lung cancers.
Early symptoms of lung cancer may be a slight cough or shortness of breath, depending on which part of the lung is affected. As the cancer develops, these symptoms may become more severe or intense.
Some of the common symptoms include cough, chest pain, difficulty in breathing, tiresomeness, wheezing, change in speech, weight loss, loss of appetite and pneumonia or bronchitis that keeps coming back.
Smoking cigarettes is the leading cause of lung cancer. However, lung cancer in non-smokers has been rising in recent years. Other causes for lung cancer include radon, radiation, asbestos, and pollution.
