Module 1. Understanding Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)
What are the symptoms of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)?
There are no specific symptoms for lung cancer. Lung cancer starts in the chest and can be masked by other diseases that begin in the chest, like pneumonia, or bronchitis. Patients often come to the attention of their doctors because they have pulmonary symptoms such as coughing, or wheezing, or shortness of breath and the doctor might order further tests to look for the presence of lung cancer.
