Truly said, ‘Precaution is better than cure’. And when it comes to health, this fits in the best possible way.
We should always go for regular check-ups so as to ensure that our body is working fine. And more than that we ourselves should check out our bodies, after all, we are the ones who know about our body better than anyone.
We just feel off and so basically, we are the first one to know when something goes wrong. That’s why it is very important for us to be aware of the hard-to-detect early symptoms that can lead to a serious medical issue.
Here we are talking about the subtle signs of lung cancer that every woman should be aware of as lung cancer is the primary factor responsible for deaths of women as compared to other forms of cancer.
So please have a look.
1. Shortness of breath
This is one of the early symptoms of just about every form of lung cancer. If just getting out of bed in the morning is causing you shortness of breath, then it could be a serious sign of respiratory problems.
If you are experiencing overwhelming fatigue along with the irritability of sleepless night, then you should right away schedule an appointment with your doctor.
3. Constant coughing
Coughing is your body’s natural response to the irritation caused in your respiratory system. And if you are coughing constantly then it may be an indication of the lung cancer. So, check with your doctor.
4. Back and shoulder pain
Well, usually back pain is not associated with lungs but for women, sharp aches around the shoulders and back can be a warning sign that something is amiss.
