Lung Cancer Symptoms: Don't Ignore Them...
Lung cancer symptoms can also be other illnesses and that's a problem because many people ignore signs and symptoms of serious illness because:
a) They think (and hope) it's something else.
b) They're afraid to face the fact that they might have a deadly illness.
The Cost of Ignoring Lung Cancer Symptoms
It's sometimes seems easier to ignore a medical symptom than deal with it. It's common. People hope that with time it will just go away. Not acknowledging it makes it seem less real. But the nagging doubts in the pit of your stomach never quite go away, do they?
There are symptoms that should never be ignored, particularly:
- Shortness of breath,
- Chest pain,
- A chronic cough,
- Hoarse voice,
- Repeated bouts of pneumonia and / or bronchitis,
- Coughing up blood.
While the presence of any (or even several) of these may not be indisputable signs of lung cancer, the possibility that they could point to it means you must take things very seriously and act swiftly.
