In brief: CT scan
High risk patients such as heavy active or former smokers and age greater than 50 may benefit from a screening low dose chest cat scan.

In brief: Symptoms
Lung cancer starts small but ultimately grows.
Early on, patients will not know that they have lung cancer because it is very small and does not produce any symptoms. Over time, lung cancer grows and this can lead to various symptoms such as coughing, recurring pneumonias, chest wall pain, hoarseness, and others.

In brief: Symptoms
Usually, new symptoms prompt an evaluation.
These include cough, chest pain, coughing blood, back pain, weight loss, shortness of breath ...Etc. If you have been a smoker for a long time, there is a cancer screening tool with low dose ct scan of the chest.
