In brief: Unexplained weight

Loss is of concern.
You know how hard it is to lose weight, and dr ho's answer is reasonable. If you weigh 450 and drop to 400, liklely a good story and you have an explanation. If you dropped 30 lbs in 3 months from 145 to 115, found on routine f/u with prostate cancer, psa <1.0, and you smoke, time for a lung cancer work up, not prosca (an actual scenario thurs.).
