Hi there.  The symptoms related to lung cancer are cough, shortness of breath, chest pain, wheezing, hemoptysis or blood coughing out. Easy fatigability, weight loss and night sweats are also present. It may lead to shoulder pain if nerves are invaded or hoarseness if vocal cords are paralysed and dysphagia. There are other symptoms related to distant metastasis  to brain may present with neurological symptoms like blurred vision, headaches, seizures and stroke symptoms. if it has spread to bones, it may lead to excruciating pain at the sites of bones involved.    Paraneoplastic syndromes due to hormone like substance produced by tumor cells like ACTH called cushing’s syndrome. There may be other non-specific symptoms including weight loss, weakness and fatigue, depression etc. hope this helps. Take care.
