Lung cancer is the second leading cause of death by cancer among men in America. To be diagnosed with this deadly disease is already a burden for anyone, but especially for those people who are working in a hazardous environment or are dealing with asbestos and its products.
One sign that you need to look out for in this disease is the accumulation of pleural plaques on the lungs, which is the accumulation of fluid and other matter around the lungs that may be indicative of cancer. Moreover, if you have been exposed to asbestos during your childhood days, you might experience signs of lung cancer later in life such as persistent coughing fits, shortness of breath, and even wheezing.
It is also important to note that there are signs of lung cancer that do not point to this disease, and which should not automatically be concluded as signs of cancer.
