Many, varied: The common symptoms are cough, chest pain, shortness of breath and weight loss. Sometimes the symptoms are due to metastases(spread tumor). In that case you may have bone pains or headaches due to tumor spread to the Bones and brain respectively.

Often none: ...Until the cancer is advanced, thus the potential benefit of screening methods in patients at risk. When symptoms happen, they are lung related (cough, shortness of breath, spitting blood) or related to advanced disease like bone pain or headaches due to metastases. Also, patients can experience fatigue and weight loss. If you smoke, please don't.
