Possible signs of non-small cell lung cancer include a cough that doesn't go away and shortness of breath.


Sometimes lung cancer does not cause any symptoms and is found during a routine chest x-ray. Symptoms may be caused by lung cancer or by other conditions. A doctor should be consulted if any of the following problems occur:

  • A cough that doesn’t go away
  • Trouble breathing
  • Chest discomfort
  • Wheezing
  • Streaks of blood in sputum (mucus coughed up from the lungs)
  • Hoarseness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss for no known reason
  • Feeling very tired
