I know you posted two months ago but was searching for a community and saw this one and came in. My husband had lung cancer and he passes away. I wanted to spread the word about the symptoms. My husband had a headache everyday and took pain meds and after about hour would go away and come back later in day and take meds it would go away. This was going on for a month he did nothing and told no one . He had just started a new job and he thought it was stress cause he had a very stressful job. He also had a cough for couple weeks .he worked in a nursing home and a nurse heard him coughing and said that sounds bad and he said he had it for a week. She told him to go to dr ASAP. She thought maybe walking pneumonia. He left work early and saw dr and was sent to pulmonary dr same day had chest exray and at 9 that night he was told over the phone they thought he had lung cancer. Was put the next morning in the hospital to slowly drain the fluid around his lung. Well who would think that a headache is a sign of lung cancer. Shortness of breath is a nother sign. Cough is also a sign.
