Lung cancer is one of the most common and serious types of cancer; it can start in the windpipe, the main airway or the lung tissue. Although there are no early signs and symptoms, the condition will eventually develop symptoms such as a persistent cough, coughing up blood, persistent breathlessness, fatigue, weight loss and aches and pains when breathing or coughing. Treatment depends on type and stage of cancer, but may include surgery, radiation therapy or chemotherapy.
