If a person had lung cancer, how long after shortness of breath symptoms appeared would you expect them to start getting sick?

An individual can be asymptomatic for a very long time with long cancer, because we have 2 lungs and quite a lot of redundancy. A lot of the lung would have to be compromised to start feeling short of breath; and the power of denial is also pretty strong.See 2 more doctor answers

30 yr old female. Shortness of breath & slight pain when breathing deeply. Former light smoker (5years, 18-23) and 2 chest CTs. Is it lung cancer?
Unlikely: From what you described, it is unlikely that you have lung cancer. However, it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you and your symptoms warrant evaluation by a physician. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.
