As the title says, what symptoms did you/your loved one experience concerning lung cancer? The symptoms can vary amongst different patients, from shortness of breath to a relentless cough.
What was your first indication that something was wrong? Please share :)

I had to have a chest x-ray and bloods because i was gonna start a new treatment and it was the x-ray that showed sumut in my lung had a biopsy and confirmed stage 3 lung cancer cos it had spread to me chest. So that was that it is what it is.

No symptoms at all. Lesion discovered when I had scan for something else. Very lucky it was discovered at very early stage. Had tumour removed and now having 3 monthly scans to check for recurrence.

My dad had symptoms of shortness of breath in the January 18, but put it down to his heart condition and sd it’s angina I’m fine. It progressively got worse and in May 18 he had a cold that he could not shift and the cough lingered he ended up in hospital and an X-ray showed a small lesion on left lung. He was told he also had pneumonia and fluid on the lung. Sadly the fluid contained cancer cells and lesion confirmed as cancer. He was automatically put at stage4 due to fluid on the outside of lung. He then developed pneumonia in his good lung in November 18 and sadly for my dad he passed away. Please please people do not ignore your symptoms!!!! No matter how busy you are please make time to be seen. The heart break and devastation is unreal. I lost my best friend and it still feels like a nightmare I’m going to wake up from.

Mum had a persistent cough and soreness, but she didn't think nothing of it. Then she started coughing blood and that's when all the test started and now she's diagnosed. Its been 3 weeks so far and I'm running around looking for info. I feel like the doctors just talk at you sometimes, not really listening.

@JanetteR This sounds so much like my symptoms before I was diagnosed. How are you doing now? I'm about to start chemotherapy but scared out my witts.

Currently back on steroids/antibiotics for an infection (saw respiratory consultant last Friday) but thankfully cancer not returned in the almost 9 years since my surgery. Returned to work and swimming 3 months after surgery and overseas travel in 2016 (insurance proved difficult). I have my fair share of chest infections/viruses/pneumonia (none of which I had before) but thankful to still be around. Very involved now in the world of cancer research and lung cancer especially and so much has changed in every type of treatment and how the medical world now understands and treats lung cancer. good luck
