Chances of lung cancer? -shoulder, upper back pain and sometimes a mild pain when I take a deep breath (left side)
Average: What you are describing does not raise specific concern for lung cancer and points more to chest wall irritation which can be from muscle strain, sometimes viral infection or exposure to inhaled irritants.

May need some Tests: Persistent cough can be due to smoking (bronchitis) or other lung diseases. Since it has persisted for one year, you should get a medical check up to find the cause.

Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
