Check if worried.: There may be cough, coughing up blood, difficulty breathing, weight loss, fatigue - or no early signs at all! early testing can lead to cure in this day and age. If you've been a smoker or had significant sidestream smoke exposure - or if you work around industrial chemicals or are a firefighter, talk to your doctor. I have a number of healthy lung cancer-free women in my practice, doing great!
