A biopsy usually provides additional specific diagnosis. There are panels of lung cancer markers also available by blood testing. Discuss your family history of lung cancer, smoking and exposures with a Pulmonary specialist. The images may be uploaded during a virtual consult with Healthtap. Watch for signs of cough, breathing difficulty and sputum/ bleeding.
