In brief: Physical and tests.

Physical exam, evaluation of risk factors, chest x-ray and ct scan would be the initial way of diagnosing lung cancer.

In brief: Find

A pulmonologist to help determine what tests you need.
At my hospital we have a lung nodule clinic to help patients navigate through diagnosis, treatment and follow up.
