In brief: Depends

Lung cancer may occur in smokers or non-smokers.
The symptoms are dependent on the location and extent of the cancer. It may be found when asymptomatic (no symptoms) or when very advanced an many symptoms, such as pain, hemoptysis (coughing up blood), seizure (brain mets), shortness of breath, etc.
