Know The Symptoms Of Lung CancerNovember 1, 2018 1:17 am
November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month and as your health care partner we wanted to make sure that you had all the facts about this challenging disease. If you are in for a visit at our New Haven County urgent care center and you suspect that you might have some of these symptoms please mention it to your medical provider.
During this month we encourage you to spread the word about the following symptoms:
- Chest pain that lasts
- Swelling of your face or neck
- Changes in a cough that you’ve had for an extended amount of time
- Hacking or raspy coughing that sometimes comes with mucus that is speckled with blood
While the above are not the only symptoms of lung cancer these are some of the symptoms that are often associated with the disease. If you suspect you have one or more of these you should be seen to catch a diagnosis early.
At our Branford or Orange Urgent Care Centers we can talk you through your options and advise you on next steps with your suspicion.
