In brief: Widely varied

Most lung cancer causes no symptoms.
Symptomatic cancer is less likely to be curable. Symptoms include; cough (with or without blood), chest pain, shortness of breath. To make it more confusing, the vast majority of people with these symptoms don"t have cancer. Rarely symptoms come from when the tumor produces a hormone that causes symptoms, or antibodies against the tumor cause symptoms.
