In brief: No, usually worsens

Usually pancoast symptoms worsen as the lung cancer gets bigger and invades more tissue.
.. Surgery and/or radiation may relieve the symptoms ...

In brief: It depends

It depends if the symptoms are caused by tumor compression or direct invasion.
If it is compression the symptoms are more likely to resolve with treatment.
