See below: Not necessarily; most often infiltrative findings on x rays are non cancerous. The need for follow up and further work up depends on the clinical scenario and needs to be decided by your doctor.

Lung cancer: One of the challenges with lung cancer is that in early stages it causes no symptoms. Persistent cough, bloody sputum and a host of other symptoms might be present, but very non-specific. Best screening is CT-based testing, but that is expensive for general population. Reducing risk factors, especially smoking, are critical.

A 32-year-old member asked:
Can you tell me which are the signs for stage 2 lung cancer?

No specific signs: The staging of lung cancer involves noninvasive imaging tests such as ct scans and pet/ct scans and invasive tests that biopsy areas suspected to have cancer.
Stage ii lung cancers are cancers that have spread beyond the initial site of their origin or have grown large enough to invade adjacent structures.
Stage ii cancers can present with identical symptoms as stage i or stage iii or IV cancers.
