Usually, there are no signs or symptoms of Lung cancer that can be seen or detected in the early stages.

The main way lung cancer is treated is when it shows symptoms such as a cough or pain. Unfortunately, symptoms usually only appear when cancer has become too advanced to cure.

But some people may show early signs of lung cancer and it’s important to be aware of it.

Lung cancer can strike a range of bodily functions, and it may affect your laugh as well.

Chest pain that is often worse when laughing is a common symptom of lung cancer, according to the American Cancer Society.

Chest pain can indicate blockages in your lungs, such as fluid buildup, enlarged lymph nodes, and tumors.

Chest pain may also be worse when deep breathing and coughing.

According to experts:

Some people have swollen fingers and nails (finger clubbing). They may also have pain and swelling in their joints. This condition is called hypertrophic pulmonary osteoarthropathy (HPOA).

It’s rare but some types of lung cancer cells produce hormones that go into the bloodstream.

These hormones can cause symptoms that don’t seem related to the lung cancer. Doctors call them paraneoplastic syndrome.

These hormone symptoms might include pines and needles or numbness in the fingers or toes, muscles weakness, drowsiness, weakness dizziness and confusion, breast swelling in men, and/or blood clots.

A very rare type of lung cancer growing right at the top of the lung is called a Pancoast tumour.

These tumours cause very specific symptoms – the most common symptom is severe shoulder pain, or pain that travels down the arm.

Pancoast tumours may also cause:

  • Drooping or weakness of one eyelid
  • A small pupil in the same eye
  • Loss of sweating on one side of the face
