Lung cancer is the type of cancer that starts in the lungs, typically in the lining of bronchi and other parts of the lungs such as bronchioles or alveoli.
Persistent cough: a persistent cough may be a sign of viral infection, bronchitis or asthma but if it keeps coming back consult your GP or an oncologist.
If you’re coughing up blood you may want to immediately consult a doctor as it may be a sign of other types of cancer (not necessarily lung cancer).
