Grey and brown productive cough is not uncommon after smoking for 20 years. Symptoms of lung cancer include: productive cough (especially with blood), weight loss, night sweats. If your husband is concerned about lung cancer, it's worth getting checked by his physician with a full exam and chest xray.
For the past few years I have had touble with falling asleep and being startled with a shorness of breath and feeling as i am having either heart attack or I am not breathing when falling asleep. The problem has worsened and now have a slight pain below the breast on the left side. Can this be an early sign of Lung Cancer? What are the symptoms of such?
It sounds like you may have sleep apnea you may check with your family doctor. My mom has it and that is what happened. And possibly anxiety before you go to sleep somewhat like a panic attack. My mom got checked and she had apnea. Good Luck.
